Learn to Sail
Next sailing meeting Thursday, April 24 at 7 p.m.

The response to our announcement of a sailing program has been everything we hoped for–10 boats have been entered, and several folks have inquired about being crew members.  Several of these folks have requested more basic training on  sailboats and sailing.

There is plenty of information on the web for the neophyte and the accomplished sailor alike, so we took time to browse the web and identify some sources that we could recommend. Those links can be found under the “Education” tab above, on our “Learn to Sail” page.

The first video is basic (i.e. “What makes a sailboat go?”) and the following four videos are excellent training (or review) of sail trim.  If you have questions after watching these, we can take a few minutes to answer them at Thursday’s meeting.
