The GRSA Sail Programs team will host Adult Learn to Sail weekends throughout 2018! No experience needed! This two day course will teach the foundation of sailing skills: parts of the boat, points of sail, tacking/jibing, sail trim, knots, helmsmanship, and rules of the road. The weekend is hands on with more time spend on the water learning and practicing the skills, than in the classroom. Classes are filled based on a first served basis and each course is limited to 12 students. Boats (Flying Scots) will be provided. Requirements include the ability to swim, a well fitting Type III PFD (life jacket) and closed toe shoes. Instruction will be provided by US Sailing certified instructors.
The sessions will run from 8:30am to 4:00pm Saturday and Sunday. Please bring an adventurous spirit, lunch, snacks, sunscreen, towel, a water bottle and sailing attire for 2 full days of fun on and in the water. The course will be conducted at GRSA (4301 Woolrdige Rd, Midlothian, VA, 23120) with classroom instruction in the main pavilion and on the water.
Cost per session is $175. Includes a personal copy of US Sailing's Learn Sailing Right, a completed Certification Record Book through US Sailing, course t-shirt, use of GRSA owned boats, and two full days of instruction!
