Learning to Sail
This course provides an evening of classroom instruction, then a full day piloting a sloop on the Chesapeake Bay. Topics covered include: boat rigging, basic knot tying, maneuvering under sail and power, and basic piloting. You will not just be told how to do these, you will get to do them! The purpose of this class is to raise your skill and confidence level so that, if you wish, you can one day pilot your own boat. No previous experience is needed. Swimming ability is required. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to the marina (directions provided). Minimum age is 18.
