This three hour course teaches students the skills needed to sail a Hobie cat safely and effectively even if you've never sailed before! A short classroom session teaches the fundamentals of sailing such as sail trim upwind and downwind, tacking and jibing. The on-the-water portion of the course consists of rigging, launching and sailing a catamaran with an instructor onboard. Finally, students learn how to right the boat in case of a capsize. Once students can perform all the skills taught in the course they become eligible for Hobie Wave Boat Access.
