Island Sailing, which has taught the maritime arts for more than 31 years, sends small groups skimming over waves during introductory workshops on the Columbia River. For two hours, American Sailing Association–certified sailing instructors drill five to six novices on the essentials of seamanship, such as efficient jibing, tacking, and bottling of the East Wind. Pupils spend all 120 minutes aboard the Cal 27 or a comparable craft, learning to assist in docking and how to function as a team while rigging and stowing the boat. Meanwhile, a crew overboard exercise teaches aquatic adventurers how to stand proper watch and ignore the allure of sirens.

Students interested in continuing their maritime education will receive a discount of 20% off the two-day ASA 101 basic keelboat class.
