Sailing Education 

 

Sailing Education

Conveying knowledge about sailing is a major focus of the club. It is strongly promoted through club sails, the monthly general meeting and at specially designated instructional gatherings known as "Sailing Orientation Session" or SOS. The club's captains and experienced members are the primary teachers but the Vice Commodore also schedules programs and events featuring outside experts.

Subjects taught at SOS may include:

    • Sailing Theory
    • Sailboat Terminology
    • Safety at Sea
    • Lines and Knots
    • Boat Etiquette
    • Dinghy Handling

During the year the club generally conducts two educational SOS classes, in Spring and Fall.

The location for these event may vary, so watch Calendar for details.

To sign up for these events Captain's and crew should email:
