Advanced Keelboat - Overview
This course builds on the TISC Basic Keelboat Level I course to hone the student’s skills from that course, while emphasizing an increasing level of ‘ownership’ by the student of the management of the boat. This course closely follows the standards of a Basic Cruising course, with the omission of boat systems and maneuvering under power but adding advanced sail trim and boat handling skills.
Building of the US Sailing Basic Keelboat(BK) course, participants will review all aspects of the BK while furthering their skills in the areas of docking under sail, anchoring, knot tying and advance sail trim, boat handling, heavy air sailing, and seamanship. Weekend One is a prerequisite for Advanced Keelboat Weekend Two.
