US SAILING CLASSES
Our mission is to get more people sailing out on Lake Washington. We want to help you build your skills and knowledge so we have more friends to sail with!
The US Sailing Keelboat Certification System offers seven levels of adult education ranging from Basic Keelboat through Offshore Passage Making. These certifications follow a building-block technique of combining learned skills with experience. New sailors gain knowledge and experience at each level and can take their sailing skills as far as they want to go at their own pace.
