Crew U

The goal of the Crew U course is to prepare students to crew on offshore racing boats. For the past 13 years, Crew U has taught adults with limited or moderate sailing experience everything that they need to know to start crewing on most racing boats. The majority of the class takes place on-the-water and has a hands-on focus. Rigging, sail trim and teamwork are among the skills covered.

Crew U classes meet once a week for seven weeks at Monroe Station. Students have additional opportunities to sail on Wednesday nights starting in June. Students should expect to be on the water.
