Learn to Sail >> Intermediate Lido
« back to courses page
For students with a good understanding of the fundamentals of sailing this is a great class for moving your sailing abilities to the next level. We will review beginning sailing skills with an emphasis on improving boat handling and refining sail trim using the tell tales and trimming for speed. The importance of balance and team work will become evident as you learn how to sail backwards and maneuver without a rudder using only the sails and crew weight. Single-handed sailing and racing will be introduced time permitting. Upon successful completion of Intermediate Lidos you are ready to move on to the Harbor 20 Level 2 or Shields 1. Prerequisite: Successful completion of Beginning Sailing or equivalent experience.
