This is a one-day sailing adventure on a 22 foot sailboat. Students will begin on shore checking weather forecasts, charting a course, and filing a float plan. The group moves to the dock where students will learn parts of a larger sailboat and what their responsibilities will be while on board. With a course charted by the students, the boat and crew will depart for several hours of sailing. Topics covered during the day include raising sails while underway, steering, sail trim, watch captains, anchoring, and sail furling. The four-hour class will include enjoying their own picnic lunch on the boat and swimming while at anchor. On the return sail, the sailors will learn strategies for approaching a dock and making the boat ship-shape and "All-a-taut-o". The students will provide a quick debrief about their trip before dismissal. All students need a PFD and a lunch. Two sessions are offered. Sign up for one or both for completely new adventures!
