Fundamentals of Sailing

The course objective is twofold. First is to offer an introduction to the art and process of sailing for new sailors, or to act as refresher for sailors who have been away from sailing for a time and are thereby seeking a refresher. A second goal is more practical and entails preparation to participate in the sailing process by taking part in the onboard activities.


Some of the topics to be addressed are the following:

  • Boat Etiquette
  • It's all about the wind
  • Terminology
  • Knots
  • Basic maneuvers (tacking and gybing)
  • Rigging the boat
  • Securing after a sail

Any questions should be addressed to Jeff Sadler (sallybear@yahoo.com) or Jim Updike (jeusail@gmail.com)
