1. US Sailing Basic Race Management Seminar. Race committee training is offered through US Sailing via Zoom. The seminar consists of three 2.5-hour Zoom sessions. Course fee $40. Seminars start Nov. 7 and Dec. 5 and are expected to be offered throughout the winter months. 

2. Mid Illini Classes. The Mid Illini Sail and Power Squadron offers in-person classes. Fall class offerings include Weather and Boat Handling. Course fee is $165 for non-members (includes a single membership fee).  Fall classes started Sept. 26 and more spring classes will be announced. Keep watching their webpage.  

3. America's Boating Club Online Learning. America's Boating Club offers a great selection of online boating courses. Learn at your own pace.

5. US Sailing Certification Courses and ASA Certification Courses offer hands-on training and are offered through certified sailing schools. Several CLSA members have earned keelboat certifications and recommend them.  

6. Performance Race Week in FloridaIf you like sailboat racing and are looking to indulge in a sailing getaway, consider Performance Race Week at the Offshore Sailing School. Performance Race Week® 2022 will be held Jan. 30 -- Feb. 4, with an exciting new team of Sail-Race Experts. You and your crewmates spend each day learning tactics, tweaking your sails and crew for efficient racing on all points of sail, practicing many starts, and pushing hard to get to the first mark, and the finish line in a regatta on the last day!
