NEW ETCHELLS 22 KEELBOAT CLASSES!
Next Class Starts This Spring TBD
Step-up to the next level of challenge at CBC keelboat sailing.
The Etchells is a big, fast, simple, stable, and sleek racing sloop that can be sailed competitively and in comfort by three or four average sailors. It can tack in 70 degrees and has a low wetted surface hull form that keeps moving in the slightest breeze. In 20+ knots it absolutely flies.
Well use this stable platform to teach a steady foundation of cruising principles and skills essential to extended day sailing trip planning.
- Basic navigation
- Cruise planning
- Keelboat handling characteristics
Graduates will qualify for Cruising Club privileges allowing extended DaySailer cruising time and range during open sailing.
Note: This boat will be used for instructional classes only. No open sailing privileges will be granted. Special day cruises may be organized at the discretion of the Director.
