Catalina Clinic

3 men sailing the Catalina Sport sailboat on Lake Natoma

This clinic is for those who have already been certified on either the Quest or the Holder 20 and wish to enhance their sailing skill and knowledge.  Course content will include rigging, de-rigging, an emphasis on safe and proper methods for approaching and leaving the dock, more in-depth coverage of sail trim techniques and use of the roller furling job for reefing.

While only one person needs to be certified to rent the Catalina, at least one other person with Quest or Keelboat certification will also be required.  

Class size is limited to 3 to 5 students; a higher level of on-the-water skill is required to successfully complete this course.  No capsize recovery required as this boat is extremely unlikely to capsize. 

If you wish to sail on a regular basis you may want to look into our Sailing Membership.

Physicality: Moderate

Prerequisite: Certified on either Quest or the Holder 20

You must call and register over the phone so that we may confirm your certification.  Please make an account in our new software system below before you call to register.
