Sign up soon for this fun and informative course designed to introduce the adult novice sailor to the wonderful world of
sailing on a 25’ keelboat. Knowledge topics will include: Terminology (sailing as a second language); basic knots used in
sailing; “rules of the road” and introduction to navigation, boating laws, basic safety and accident prevention; how to use a
marine radio, and introduction to anchors and anchoring. Hands-on skills will include properly hoisting sails, sailing to and
from a dock and/or mooring as both skipper or crew, in various wind directions, using proper commands and responses; sailing a
windward-leeward course, successfully coming about and jibing without direction from an instructor; using crew overboard recovery
techniques; and securing the boat safely and securely in a slip to minimize motion, as well as other topics as time allows.
Graduates should feel confident to take a boat out in normal conditions, local waters, with crew, or be good crew for someone else.
This course will be taught by an American Sailing Association (ASA) certified instructor.
