AT CAMANO SAIL AND POWER
The course includes land drills, knots,
sailing terminology, on-the-water sailing drills, and discussion and
practice of the skills contained in the US SAILING text Learn Sailing
The skipper candidate will be evaluated throughout the
course on their ability to successfully perform the required
skills. A written test will be given at the end of the course for
which an 80% grade is required to pass. Upon
successful completion of the class, the sailor will receive a United
Sailing Association course completion card.
This card will be evidence that the sailor is a competent Skipper in
dinghy that they used and in the wind and sea states that existed
course. This card will enable the
sailor/Skipper to rent the type of dinghy that they learned in during
the scheduled Open Sailing sessions. If the boat is capable of
sailors, the Skipper may take another person with them during Open
Sailing. The other person need not be a
sailor but, they will need to have a swim test on file and to have the
cold-water protection as the skipper.
