A 6-class introduction to sailing for those with little or no small boat sailing experience. Taught in 8′ El Toro and Pico dinghy’s (w/o jib), the class covers rigging, parts of the boat, basic boat handling and seamanship, points of sail, capsize recovery, Safety, Knots, Weather, “Rules-of-the-Road” and Tides & Currents. Emphasis is towards “On-the-Water” experience practicing within the protected VYC harbor. As students acquire skills, they will progress to practicing outside the harbor. A graduate should gain all the skills necessary to confidently and safely continue their sailing experience, either on their own or in advanced sailing classes.
