Our 2nd meeting to discuss the basics of sailing is now scheduled. This meeting will cover a number of topics that build on our skills acquired last Thursday. Topics that we will review include identifying key parts of a sailboat, harnessing the wind, basic sail trim, adjusting to changing wind velocity and wind direction, tacking and gybing (changing direction). Mastering these topics will accelerate your learning once you get on a boat. Don't miss this meeting if you are new to sailing. Once again, amazing visual props will be employed to augment our discussion.
Before we meet, I'd be happy for any feedback from those of you who attended Thursday's meeting in East Greenwich. Thanks in advance.
We need to cover our monthly Meet-up fee of $19.00 (what Meet-up.com charges me monthly to maintain our web presence). so, plan on throwing in a buck or two to defray our costs. Thanks.
