US Sailing Certification

US Sailing BasicĀ KeelboatĀ Certification

Wrightsville Performance Sailing offers two ways to accomplish your US Sailing Basic Keelboat Certification. Our traditional 3-Day course for those new to sailing or our express Basic Keelboat course challenge for those who are experienced and ready to test without the need for standard training.

3-Day Course

Our adult only US Sailing Basic Keelboat course takes place over three days and is a great option for those seeking a third-party sailing certification. The 3-Day basic keelboat course covers a broad spectrum of sailing a small keelboat up to 26′. With an emphasis on theory and on water practice, this course is a comprehensive way to gain experience both at the helm operating the boat and as crew on board.
