PREREQUISITE: Must be at least 14 years old & able to swim 50 yards
If you have never sailed before or just have a little experience sailing with others, this is the class for you. You will learn basic sailing skills and gain confidence through dockside lectures and hands-on experience in Lido 14 dinghies. Dinghy sailing is a physical activity and participants should have physical stamina, good balance, and be capable of moving about safely in the boat. Topics will include sailing theory, points of sail, basic terminology, tacking, gybing, safety, knots, and docking. Eighty percent of class time is spent enjoying the outdoors and sailing the Lidos within Newport Bay. Two students per boat.
