Adult Sail on Swift Creek Reservoir
The Greater Richmond Sail Association will host Adult Learn to Sail weekends throughout 2018! No experience needed! This two-day course will teach the foundation of sailing skills: parts of the boat, points of sail, tacking/jibing, sail trim, knots, helmsmanship, and rules of the road. The weekend is hands-on with more time spent on the water learning and practicing the skills, then in the classroom. Classes are filled based on a first served basis and each course is limited to 12 students. Boats (19′ Flying Scots) will be provided. Requirements include the ability to swim, a well-fitting Type III PFD (life jacket) and closed-toed shoes. Instruction will be provided by US Sailing certified instructors.
Please bring an adventurous spirit, lunch, snacks, sunscreen, towel, a water bottle, and sailing attire for 2 full days of fun on and in the water. The course will be conducted at GRSA marina with classroom instruction in the main pavilion and on the water.
Fee includes a personal copy of US Sailing’s Learn Sailing Right, a completed Certification Record Book through US Sailing, course t-shirt, use of GRSA-owned boats, and two full days of instruction! Minimum age is 18.
