Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)

 
       
Q: How many people do you teach at one time?
A:Normally two, we can make exceptions.
 
Q: What type of boat do we learn on?
A: You will learn to sail on either a Hunter 28 or a J34, both stable sailing platforms. The Hunter 28 is normally used for ASA 101 and 103, and as you gain additional skills and prepare to handle a larger boat, you will most likely sail on the J34. (Most schools use smaller boasts for basic keelboat: however we have found that our students prefer to learn on the type of boat upon which they will eventually continue their sailing career).
J34
