SAILING SCHOOL - "Introduction to sailing" - Half Day Beginners Sailing Class
This is our intro sailing class for those who have never sailed before and want to just get a feeling for handling a big sailboat. This is the make or break - "Do I really want to get into this?" type of class.
What is covered
The basics. Our instructor will take you out into the wide blue ocean (or a reasonable facsimile thereof, otherwise known as the Gulf of Mexico) and show you how to hoist the sails and get the sailboat going under sail power.
What else is covered?
The basic points of sail. How to sail to the wind (close reach), sideways to the wind (beam reach) and with the wind (broad reach)
You will be given the wheel and taught how to feel the wind and trim the sails for the direction of the wind.
Nope! What else do you expect for only four hours?
After this short introduction to sailing, you will have a good idea if this is something you want to pursue (or run away from!).
You must be kidding! Not even Windsong Sailing School is crazy enough to issue a certificate after only 4 hours of sailing! But this will assist you in deciding if sailing is something you want to get into before committing to a real sailing class, such as our beginners or intermediate class where you actually WILL receive a certificate. This also counts toward "sail time" for you to put into your sailing log book.
