Advanced Sailing


If you're an experienced sailor (kid or adult) who wants to get into single handed sailing, you'll get the right challenge via Shoreline's Advanced Course to introduce the Laser class sailing.

This 4-hour per day, 2-day course introduces the laser – a single handed planing hull with simple controls for advanced technique.

Topics include: Advanced Sail Trim, Beach Landings, Hull Dynamics, Aerodynamics, Self-Rescue, and Dry Capsizing. Students will receive hands-on feedback and work towards earning a light and heavy wind US Sailing Certification.

Prerequisites: For Laser Courses, all participants must be qualified to rent a sailboat (i.e., have a Capri rental card), and registration is limited to advanced sailors.

Appropriate for ages 14 and up, this course offers something for everyone wanting to become a proficient sailor.

Important: Please arrive 10-15 minutes before your class to check in.
