Our course will teach you how to read the weather, basic navigation, rules of the road and plan for a sail. We will learn the directions of the wind, how to sail to and from the dock, basic knots, steering and crew-overboard recovery. This is a comprehensive course and at the end you will be able to confidently sail small keelboats. This is a great course for anyone interested in day sailing, cruising or beginning racing.
