Sailing 4: Introduction to Keelboats (SESSION A)
June 7, 14, 21, 28
This course is intended for those who are interested in learning more about keelboats. Keelboats are often popular with those looking for a more relaxed sailing experience since they are more comfortable and more stable than dinghies. Topics covered will include different types of keelboats; launching and retrieving a keelboat from a trailer; rigging and de-rigging; departing and returning to dock under sail; helming (steering); crewing; communicating and safety. Students will have the opportunity to get practice in a keelboat (3 students and one instructor per boat).
Must be 18 or older
