        1.     Presenting a current US SAILING small boat qualification card or "Little Red Book" signed by any US SAILING small boat instructor.
        2.     Challenging the small boat qualification curriculum by demonstrating an ability to competently sail, including capsize and recovery, a small dinghy sailboat, and by passing a basic small boat multiple choice take-home exam.
        3.     Successfully completing the Camano Sail and Power Learn to Sail Small Sailboat course.  
WHO ELSE CAN SAIL WITH A QUALIFIED SMALL BOAT SKIPPER?
    Any person who has all of the appropriate paperwork on file, who wears a wet suit and booties, and who has successfully completed the float/swim test may sail as crew in a rental boat with a qualified skipper.
