WOW Sail Class on Scots

Why a women's sailing class?

Because women really do learn sailing differently from men. It's not that hard. You just need the right conditions.

So join instructors Sandi and Allison for a day of skill building and confidence building in a supportive, encouraging environment. Take the time you need to absorb the material and ask all the questions you want. Sailing is supposed to be fun!

We will be using Flying Scots (like the boat in the picture) which are 19 foot sailboats with a main and jib. They are stable and can hold 4 to 5 people comfortably in the cockpit. We find that basic sailing is best learned on small boats, where you can see cause and effect more easily. Once you feel comfortable sailing a smaller boat you can apply those same skills to larger boats.

9:00 am - 11:30 am
:  We will meet in the clubhouse boardroom to explain and illustrate sailing basics.
11:30 am - 12:30 pm: Lunch. Please bring your own
12:30 pm - 3:00 pm: Rig the boats and sail
3:00 pm - 4:00pm: Un-rig and secure the boats
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm: Cheese and crackers and questions.

You don't have to be particularly athletic but you do need to be able to get on and off the boat from the dock. We will change sides while we sail and you will need to be able to move under the boom. There is no capsize drill involved but the boat will heel some depending on the wind.

* A PFD (life jacket) to be worn at all times while on the boat
* Lunch
* A water bottle to take on the boat.
* Sailing clothes (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, and so on...)
