Contact the Adult Course Instructor and Sailing Coordinator: Mark Prange
Who should take this course? Novice/intermediate sailors, 18 and older. Two students will be paired up and will sail (yes, students will take turns skippering – under the watchful eye of the boat owner) on privately owned C or MC scows with hands on mentoring by experienced sailors.
What if I have some sailing experience? Instructors are conscious of varied levels of experience and will adjust classroom and on water sailing to match skill levels.
What will I learn? To start, your instructor will introduce material in two evening classroom settings. Topics will include terminology, sailing concepts, safety, equipment familiarization, and an overview of sailing options available to novices.
A popular feature of the class will be viewing a Wednesday night race “up close and personal” with your instructor. This will allow some of the concepts discussed to be seen and understood.
What do I need to bring? Students must bring an open mind. During on Water sessions students should wear comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Please bring a Life jacket.
