New to sailing? An old salt, but new to Florida? This class is the fruit of 40 years of sailing the coast of the Sunshine State. Coastal navigation (without electronics), trip planning, anchoring, provisioning, meal planning, weather patterns, currents, battling bugs, sail trim, self-steering, emergencies, daily chores, and more. The class is an extension of the ages-old tradition where sailors pass along their lore orally.
But instead of a deck with a mast soaring above us, we’ll have a state-of-the-art classroom to share ways to keep our wits at sea. Basic sailing principles are assumed.
