Full Weekend Courses


Basic Keelboat

18 hours $475 + $50 Certification Fee

This course provides the student with a foundation of skills and follows a curriculum set by US Sailing, the national governing body of sailing. Students learn how to rig and derig a boat, sail at different angles to the wind, tie various knots, and predict weather patterns. Skills taught on the water are reinforced in the classroom.

*New this year, HRCS is offering a Women's Basic Keelboat course as an option for female identifying students who would prefer a single-gender option.*


Intermediate Keelboat

16 hours $500

Looking to take your skills to the next level? This class, held on our brand new fleet of J/80 sailboats, is the ideal next step for sailors who have taken our Intro or Basic Keelboat courses, or who are looking to build on prior experience. Learn how to interpret tide and current charts, take the next step toward mastering the crew overboard maneuver, and build the confidence necessary to skipper a small keelboat on a dynamic waterway.

*New this year, HRCS has expanded our intermediate-level lesson into a more rigorous weekend-long course *
