Rigging Refreshers – Free!

For returning members who want a quick reminder on how to properly rig our club boats: Quest, Albacore, Laser or Byte. These free drop in clinics will refresh your memory and save those embarrassing moments on the beach when you raise the jib upside down or forget how to tighten the outhaul. One of our instructors will be available on Saturday afternoons in May and June to show you the ropes.

Powerboat Orientation – Free!

KSC is a member-run club, so members may be asked to operate the club powerboats from time to time to assist with club activities or even to aid in a rescue. This clinic will give you an opportunity to refresh your powerboat operating skills so that you can confidently load, start and run the club’s equipment.

NOTE: in order to participate in this clinic, you must have a Pleasure Craft Operator’s Card and you must bring the card with you to the clinic. If you need a card, click here.

Catamaran Clinic

For experienced dinghy sailors who would like to qualify to use KSC’s fleet of catamarans, this program will provide you with the training you need to get your RED TAG.  Learn how to sail and control a high performance Hobie catamaran in a safe and controlled learning environment.

Please note: you must have at least two years sailing experience to register for this course.  KSC reserves the right to refund the course fee of any student who, in the instructor’s opinion, does not have sufficient abilities to benefit from this program.
