Schedule

Single Day

Description

In order for members to use our largest and most expensive boats, very polished boat handling skills will be expected. There will be a charge for this course and it will not be a "teaching" course. This is strictly an evaluation to prove that you have the experience and skills necessary to safely sail and maneuver these vessels. This is a pass/fail course and there will be a discount to repeat it if you fail. Expect it to take the entire day and involve both motoring and sailing skill evaluations. Before signing up, we recommend at least 40 days of water time on boats in our club, and at least 20 of those on Gold Fleet boats. In addition to water time, we recommend being checked out on the entirety of the Gold Fleet before attempting this class. Checkouts are a great way to find out where your skills are in relation to our expectations at this level.
