Sailing Pathways - beyond learn to sail







Many clubs have established a learn to sail program which provides an introduction for new members. Beyond this there is little for members to improve their sailing skills and abilities, gain knowledge, increase their confidence and ultimatley compete successfully in club racing and beyond. Coaching programs can fill this gap. Programs can be run by a club or class association and provide sailors with the next step after learn to sail and learn to race.
