About this event

Description

We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Sunday, July 17, 2022.

This class will cover the basics of sailing and incorporate more on-the-water hands-on practice for students to acquire confidence and experience. We will cover boat rigging, knots, points of sail, sail trim, finding wind and give each student time to learn the various roles that a skipper and crew fill. We will also cover rules of the road and use of navigation aids for safely traveling from our moorage slips out into the harbor. This is a great beginning class for anyone who has the dream of someday owning their own boat and cruising in the Puget Sound area. You will get a full 12 hours of class with most of it being spent on the water. For those wanting more practice and experience, this is a class that you can repeat.
