Sailing Classes

Sailing classes are co-educational and include beginning through advanced levels. They are offered as P.E. classes Fall, Winter and Spring quarters through OPERS at UCSC.

All of the classes combine "hands on" practice in the harbor and out on the Monterey Bay with training in boating safety, weather, ocean conditions, sailing theory, rigging, navigation, and the maritime rules of the road.

All classes prepare students to pass certification tests for recreational boat use in the UCSC Sailing Club.

A public Summer Boating Program is offered by the UCSC Boating Center every summer featuring beginning through advanced sailing classes for adults, and children (ages 8-16).
