Designed for the dedicated sailor who has demonstrated high sailing proficiency in Coronado 15s. Students will sail our high performance RS Ventures and learn anchoring, trapeze, fine tune rigging, capsize recovery and docking. After successful completion of this course students may rent our RS Ventures sail boats. Ventures are incredibly versatile, and capable of handling SF Bay high winds but also stable and spacious enough for a relaxing cruise with family and friends.
