What boat will we learn on?
Allow us to introduce the newest member of the family, CARINA. She’s a brand new 2022 Topaz Argo. This will be your classroom for the Intro to Sailing class and the ASA 101 certification. 15’ in length and 6’ wide, she provides a very stable and quick platform to learn upon. Featuring a triple sail plan of a mainsail, a furling jib and single line Asymmetrical spinnaker, she can be single-handed by one, raced effectively by 2 and enjoyed by up to 4 crew members!
Interested in one on one training? Or maybe you want to get you and your crew up to speed before an upcoming charter? We can customize private instruction for up to 4 people for an extremely competitive rate.
