What is the cost?

The cost is $125 per person per seminar. Each clinic will only run if there is at least 2 people   signed up, and the max is 4 people per clinic.

Will there be more sailing clinics?

As I am an elementary school teacher here in Gibsons, I have a couple of weeks off during March. If the clinics fill up quickly and there is a lot of demand, I may consider opening up more clinics during March Break (March 12-27). I may also run clinics this summer depending on club boat availability. I am also available for private instruction.
