Mastering Daysailing

The course builds on the skills & equipment learned in the level one by introducing additional rigging (outhaul/vang), equipment (centerboard/keel), and a sail (jib), staples in daysailer designs.

Students are challenged with the increased maneuverability of the mono-hull design relative to the catamaran, particularly in fresher breezes.
