We’ll be sailing in San Francisco Bay in  moderate to heavy winds (up to 30 knots) and sea conditions. You will leave these course with the basic knowledge of catamaran structure, components and features, performance under sail and power, boat systems, seamanship and safety, heavy weather operation, and emergency response.  Prior sailing experience required for both courses.
