Event Information

Description

Students will receive an insight into the world of sailing with this short but informative and interactive class aboard our J/24.  Students will get a safety briefing and be provided with life jackets.  Students will get a walk though above decks and will introduced to about 25 nautical terms.  A few demonstrations of line handling, boat awareness and physical stances will be shown before leaving the dock.  Once on the water the sails will be raised and students will be coached on sail trim, crew movement and helming.   Students will then practice tacking and jibing while actively taking part in a discussion of sail propulsion and fluid dynamics. Everyone on board will be given the opportunity to helm and trim sails.   Students will be given the opportunity to relax and take it all in, however should be prepared for some physical activity in this quick but educational experience.  No Experience Necessary
