Basic Keelboat – BKB (ASA 101): This is a three-day, semi-private introductory sailing course. No prior boating experience or navigation skills are required. Over the 24 hours of this class, each student will learn to sail a 22-foot Capri in light to moderate wind and sea conditions on the San Joaquin River.
Our Basic Keelboat classes are semi-private lessons with two students and one instructor per boat. This allows for plenty of experience learning to pilot the boat as both skipper and crew. Students taking the class with a friend or family member can sign up by selecting a date from the list below. Pricing listed in the registration section below is for two students.
