Fast Track 2023

Cal Sailing Junior Dinghy Fast Track Program

Fast Track Sailing Courses are intensive sessions designed to teach you the skills required for a Dinghy Junior rating. The Fast Tracks typically consist of 5 consecutive evenings (usually 5-8pm) of sailing lessons, running from Monday to Friday nights, with one-on-two instruction. As in other sports, intensive instruction will improve your skills rapidly. You'll be on the water for over two hours each session, have a debrief with your instructor afterwards, sharing food and drinks.

Scroll through the photos above to get an idea of what it's like.

You can signup here by clicking on the session you're interested in.


  • Fast Track is for CSC members only. Non members must first become members in order to sign up
  • Each session has room for 16 students, who will be selected by the Session Coordinator
  • Signup is open now for all future fast tracks. Signup closes the Sunday a week before the session starts
  • Each session has pre-requisites, described under the session. You can sign up without having completed the pre-requisites, but you must complete them in order to be accepted into the session
  • Pre-requisites may vary by session but will always include passing the Junior Written Exam and the Rigging Test
  • You do not need a Novice rating to participate, but having it will raise your priority for selection
  • It helps to get as much sailing practice as possible prior to the session (e.g., by taking lessons)
  • You must commit to attending all 5 session days. If you get a Junior rating before the end of the session, you agree to return to teach others.
