Sailing Tips for Beginners

A free workshop geared for beginning crew members will be presented by SUS club member Michael Miller. Michael is certified as a Small Boat and Keel Boat Instructor by the US Sailing Association.

If you are new to sailing, or have been crewing on boats and want to understand more of what is going on, this workshop is for you. It will help you to be a safer and more valuable crew member and help you prepare for the day that you are piloting your own boat. Bring your sailing questions!

Start Sailing Right
, a book by the US Sailing Association, is a good place to get a foundation. 

The workshop is also open to SUS Club members and precedes the SUS Program Meeting which starts after 7:30 pm in the same conference room. Lobby signs for "Singles Under Sail" will direct you there. Arrive early and enjoy beverages & dinner at the Hyatt's Gazebo Bar & Grill.

    I'd love to have gone to this, but I'm afraid I made previous plans that I can't break

      Hi Steven. I really want to go, but my condo association has an important meeting tomorrow. I don't know if I am going to make it. Hopefully, we can do some more sailing in the future. Ensign racing was great this summer.

      Peter, Ensign racing with you and WCOA really got my juices up for sailing I bought a Caalina 22 that I keep at Norwalk Cove. If we don't get together this season (there are only a few weeks left) then we surely will next season. As to me, I'm going to Lake George for the last motorcycle rally of the season.

    I missed the last knotting class and was very disappointed with that. I will be there for this one. I am excited to learn more about sailing and hopefully meet some new friends who love it as much as I do.
