Open to sailors who have successfully completed beginning sailing and wish to expand their skills. Classes are taught in Optimists and O’pen Bic dinghies. Instruction will include rigging, boat handling, sail trim, safety, and an introduction to racing. Sailors should be comfortable in all wind conditions and must be able to demonstrate safe capsize recovery unassisted. Classes are generally held within the confines of the Hood River Marina, but classes may sail outside the marina when conditions permit. Most students take this course at least twice before moving up to Advanced.
