Colgate 26 Qualification 

COLGATE 26 QUALIFICATION is open to Sail Chicago members who are already qualified to sail our Rhodes 19s and Ideal 18s (Skippercard holders). This course will enable skippers to gain familiarity with the sailing characteristics of a larger boat.  You will learn about equipment not found on our smaller boats, including reefing and roller furling systems, winches, and VHF radio.  You will gain experience using the outboard motor to leave and return to the mooring can as well as approaching and leaving a dock.  Learning to skipper the Colgate 26 is a good way to gain the skills and confidence to qualify to sail our 34’ Hunter, Priorities.  This class consists of two lessons; the course fee is $100.  Classes may be held at either Monroe Harbor or Belmont Harbor, depending on boat and instructor availability.
