This is event is for paid CSA members only.
In recognition of the fact that many new members are novice sailors and many existing members are not familiar with all the skipper’s boats, CSA is offering a day with a skipper or 2 in which members can be introduced to basic sailing techniques and also become more familiar with the skipper’s boats and the parts of a sailboat, in general. The objective of the learning sessions will be to teach CSA members how to be an effective crew member. This learning session will be held at the White Rocks Marina where Hal (and maybe another Skipper if enough people sign up) will have his boat at the end of one of the piers. The first part of the session will be conducted on a boat while it’s at dock with the skipper explaining the parts of a boat and how to use and operate each part. They will also explain what the crew is expected to do during each of the sailing maneuvers (tacking , jibing, docking, etc.) and how to do each job. After the first part of a session, there will be a break for lunch at Mike's Crab House located next to the Marina and then the second part of the session will be conducted while sailing on the water with the skipper and crew practicing all the techniques they learned in the first part of the session.
So come out for a day of sailing that will combine learning about sailing, a social (everyone will eat lunch together at Mike's Crab House) and a day on the water. There is no charge for the course. It is being offered by the generosity of the skippers interested in helping beginning sailors become comfortable with sailing.
