Class and Certification Challenges

The Challenge is for students with experience who want to enter the program at a more advanced level, OCC Sailing Association students seeking rental privileges and students challenging a US SAILING Certification level.

The Challenge is designed to acquaint the student with the equipment, location, care and safe use. There is a required two-part exam: (1) practical aspects; and (2) written exam. The Challenge is not sailing instruction, but a TEST for students who already have the required knowledge and skill level.
