Introduction to Sailing

The first session of Introduction to Sailing started on Saturday, June 8th (10 students) and the second session started on Monday, June 10th (11 students). This is the first year we are incorporating the Holder 14s and we are very pleased with them so far. They sail fine with just the main and can comfortably carry 3 adults. Teaching with two different types of boats (Sunfish and Holder) has presented new challenges and some additional work, but we are working out the kinks. Thanks to everyone who has shown up to help with the first two sessions (Bill D, Bill S, Chris P, Eileen R, Laura M, Lisa S, Nathan and Scott R).

Monday night class – Sunfish and two Holders. Laura and Bill D coaching from the Whaler.
