SAILINGThe DAYSAILING course provides 24 hours onboard instruction in boat handling and buoy-to-buoy navigation in Boston Harbor. It is the starting point for students with little or no experience, and persons with some experience who need instruction to feel confident sailing. This course prepares students for the BHSC Basic Keelboat certification exam and the Club’s Boston 27/Soling daysailing membership.

BOATHANDLING: The first 16 hours are dedicated to learning the sailing maneuvers on our new Boston 27’s, a boat the Club has adapted from Solings expressly for teaching. It has comfortable seating for 5 adults, a self-bailing cockpit, dry storage forward, a furling jib, and more than enough foam flotation to make the boat unsinkable. It provides good sailing feedback for learning with safety.

NAVIGATION: The last 8 hours include navigating with charts in Boston Harbor and an orientation to small cruising boats. Class begins with a review of outboard operation, fueling, use of marine heads and VHF radio, then a 20 mile navigation tour of the Harbor with docking and anchoring practice at an island in Outer Harbor lunch break. Class is offered Saturdays 9-3.

STUDENT MEMBERSHIP: Daysailing students enjoy 35 days sailing privileges from the first onboard lesson to practice on the Boston 27, Soling and Pearson 26.
