A pair of basic sailing lessons teach progressively more advanced techniques, beginning with a focus on vessel safety, harbor orientation, tacking, jibing, and casting off. The second lesson discusses points of sail and de-rigging as well as collision avoidance, tacking and jibing, and knot tying.
Marina Sailing recommends that participants bring a bottle of water, take a non-prescription anti-motion sickness medication if they’re unused to seafaring, and wear nonskid, closed-toe shoes. All classes take place inside the harbor.
