Session 1h

Beginning Sailing

Level 1, sailing the Rhodes 19

Goal: Introduction to sailing. Skills: the basics, including boat handling on all points of sail, knot-tying, attaching sails, steering a course, stopping safely, retrieving a person overboard, tying up to a mooring, safety rules and moving around in the boat. By the end of the course, the student should feel confident and comfortable sailing a small boat in a sheltered area.

This course, which will emphasize personal instruction, is appropriate for adult sailors who are working at either one-sail, or two-sail boat-handling skills. Students move at their own pace through the skills. Instructors work with groups of similar-skill students to maximize individual progress. Additional individual coaching is also available.

PREREQUISITE: "Sailing Basics" orientation is required preparation for this class. "Sailing Basics" is REQUIRED for all Level 1 classes, or may be waived by Instructor approval.  To request approval, please use contact us.

Tuition: $325 per session, EYC adult student membership fee: $5 per day
