Adult Classes

Adult Introduction to Sailing

 

Who should take this course? Novice/intermediate sailors, 18 and older.  Two students will be paired up and will sail (yes, students will take turns skippering – under the watchful eye of the boat owner) on privately owned C scows with hands on mentoring by experienced sailors.

 

What if I have some sailing experience? Instructors are conscious of varied levels of experience and will adjust classroom and on water sailing to match skill levels.

 

What will I learn? To start, your instructor will introduce material in two evening classroom settings.  Topics will include terminology, sailing concepts, safety, equipment familiarization, and an overview of sailing options available to novices.

 

A popular feature of the class will be viewing a Wednesday night race “up close and personal” with your instructor.  This will allow some of the concepts discussed to be seen and understood.

 

What do I need to bring? Students must bring an open mind.  During on Water sessions (two scheduled) students should wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes.  Life jackets will be provided.

 

When?  First class is the evening of Thursday, June 22nd at 7:00 pm. On Wednesday, June 28th there will be a race observation at 6:15 pm. Subsequent classes are scheduled at times convenient to all attendees.
