In our clinics we cover: basic boating and water safety, terminology and skills development on our Capri 14’ sailboats. Our high instructor / student ratio maximizes safety while facilitating hands on experiential learning. Accessible Sailing, which is a section within our adapted program, is dedicated solely to train our sailors with physical limitations. Our certified sailing instructors teach progressive, hands on sailing and build on skills learned in previous clinics. All our students must be ‘water safe’: generally comfortable in a swimming pool or open water. Our equipment has some adaptability limitations. Please contact us for specifics on our ‘water safe’ requirements and equipment limitations. (949) 492-3035 Diane@westwindsailing.com www.westwindsailing.com Aides are welcome to attend.
