Laser Dinghy Classes

The focus for this class is to get you out on the water safely and learning small boat sailing concepts and skills with confidence. This single-handed (one person) boat is unique: most of the control depends on balance…and all the balance depends on body movements and weight placement. Be sure to bring your wet suit! Reading of The “Start Sailing Right” textbook is highly recommended. Click here to purchase this on Amazon.
