Sailing Training and Courses on Catalina 36 Sailing Yacht in Vancouver
Your Cruising Classroom "Sailing Still" is a Catalina 36' sloop-rigged, fiberglass, diesel auxiliary sailboat that draws a 6' draft and a wide beam of 12'. The boat is 36 feet LOA, 7 tons displacement and has 50 gallon fresh water and fuel tanks. The Catalina 36 is a roomy cruising vessel with a private cabin center forward, and skipper's quarters aft, under the cockpit. The wide beam and heavy keel make the boat stiff, and modern reefing gear allow sail to be reduced easily. The advantage of combining an easily driven hull with small reefed sails is that the strain is taken off the lines when new sailors are aboard for learning skills. This boat, when reefed down, still handles well, tacks easily and is fun to sail without a great deal of heeling or hard winching. However, if a show of speed under sail is desired... out come the reefs and away we go! Who Belongs on the Water? "You can teach a man to sail, but you can't teach him why," Joseph Conrad. I love that quote. It perfectly describes what sets sailors apart and what we're all about. As you can imagine, in all my years teaching sailing, I've met all kinds of people with so many reasons for being on the water. We come to it from all ages, walks of life, from all parts of the world and levels of ability. It's not about any of those things. It's about what you love ... and what you dream of doing. It's about adventure. The wind on your face, the rush of the bow slicing through the waves, the taste of the salt spray on your lips, a well-deserved ice-cold beer or glass of fine wine as the sun sets on your anchorage. Here you'll find helpful information about our recreational sailing yacht training... come join in the adventure ~ Prices vary based on class type. Please contact for more information.
