Refresher lessons are a FREE way for those with previous dinghy or catamaran sailing experience to review rigging, launching and specific boat knowledge with a SSP instructor. This is a good opportunity to asses ones readiness prior to taking the Skills Proficiency Test that is required to rent a boat at SSP.
Refresher lessons are 60 minutes long* and are taught on Hobie Waves, Lasers and Flying Juniors (FJs). In a refresher lesson, our instructors will review:
- Boat rigging specifics
- Launching and retrieving
- Boat specific tips
Refresher Lessons are held during Open Boating hours on weekends, beginning after Memorial Day Weekend and ending Labor Day Weekend. Generally, our refreshers will be taught at the following times;
- Hobie wave refreshers: Saturday and Sunday mornings from 10:00 am – 11:00 am
- Laser refreshers: Saturday afternoons 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
- FJ refresher: Sunday afternoons: 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm
*Please see the google calendar below to confirm the your refresher of interest is scheduled to be taught*
Classes are determined on a first come first serve basis, no advance registration is available for refreshers. We do ask that sailors please arrive at least 10 mins early and check with our Dockmaster at the Dockmaster desk. Since refresher lessons are taught at an accelerated pace, late arrivals will miss a significant amount of material and may not be able to join the lesson.
*Depending on group size and the wind conditions, lessons may be shorter or longer.
