Basic Sailing Lessons
Tuesdays Evenings in March 2020, 6:30-7:45pm each night
Starting March 3, four weeks of lessons (Tuesdays, March 3, 10, 17 and 24). These classroom lessons are for those new to sailing and those interested in relearning some of the basics. This is your chance to see what sailing is all about. We will breakdown sailing videos and learn the basics needed for a good time on a sailboat, whether day-sailing or racing.
If the weather is good, we will go out on the water March 24th when Daylight Saving Time gives us one hour of potential sunshine.
Basics of Sailing will include:
- Looking for wind
- Action of the wind on the sails
- Points of sail
- Weather / Safety on the water
- Changing course
- Parts of a sailboat
- Enjoying your time on the water / confidence
- Basic seamanship / knots / maintenance
- Racing basics
