Registration is open for Discover Sailing and Discover Boating clinics at the Pacific Sail & Power Boat Show, which is set for April 6-9 at the Craneway Pavilion and Marina Bay Yacht Harbor in Richmond, Calif.

The clinics will be held during all four days of the show.

An introductory sailing clinic called “Cast Off For Cruising” will give attendees a 90-minute sail aboard one of Club Nautique’s new Beneteau 31s. During the course attendees will take the helm under the guidance of a Coast Guard-licensed captain.

“Power Cruising on San Francisco Bay” will offer a 90-minute cruise aboard the new Jeanneau NC9 and give participants a chance to take the helm for a tutorial on basic powerboat operation while they see some of the bay’s famous sights.

During a “Catamaran Sailing Clinic” aboard a Lagoon 38, Passage Nautical will give intermediate training during a two-hour on-the-water program, teaching participants large cruising under sail and power.

“Intro to Sailing a Boat Over 40 Feet” will offer experience during a two-hour class on sailing a larger boat aboard a Beneteau Oceanis.

Organizers said visitors who decide to venture beyond sailing basics can expand their horizons through ASA sailing courses offered by Passage Nautical.

Lastly, “Twin Engine Clinic — Close Quarter Maneuvering — Docking” is a three-hour clinic designed to teach participants how to control a twin-engine vessel in close-quarters maneuvering. After a short discussion about the four forces at work while motoring — prop walk, prop wash, wind, and current — the course will review the basic undocking and docking techniques aboard a Gran Turismo 44.
