This class will be held in four 3-hour sessions. This course is for adults with little or no sailing experience. It will be taught in small groups in a stable and comfortable 23-foot Sonar keelboat and a 26-foot J/80. In this hands-on course, students will learn to rig the boat, handle sails and steer the boat. Emphasis will be on safety and on all aspects of boat handling, including leaving and returning to the mooring, man overboard procedure and how to manage safely in strong winds.
