Basic Small Keelboat Sailing


Vallejo Yacht Club Invites all aspiring sailors to join our Learn To Sail Program. The program includes  various levels of instruction from Dingy to Keelboat with all classes located at the Vallejo Yacht Club. Your instructors are experienced sailors with US Sailing Association certifications. They are also members  of the club who volunteer their time to help keep the cost as low as possible and are committed to  introducing everyone to this exciting sport by emphasizing and encouraging fun and safety on the water.


Our fleet of training boats includes nine Laser Pico sailing dinghies. Fast, Fun & stable,  these 11′ rotomolded boats make excellent trainers for beginning to intermediate sailors. They are an excellent complement to our fleet of traditional El Toros & Hunter Club Trainers. Intermediate sailors can advance to our fleet of seven 14′ Lasers to refine their skills

  • Be able to swim 50 yards and tread water

  • Be at least 9 years old
