  • These workshops are In lieu of our Friendship Sails in which participation has waned considerably.
  • The subjects are based on my conversations last summer with members who expressed concerns about not knowing how to or feeling uncomfortable with items such as:
  1. Anchoring
  2. Rafting up
  3. Rescuing a man overboard
  4. Reefing and heaving to
  5. Sailing Downwind and Jibing
  6. Towing a disabled sailboat
  7. Knot tying and line splicing (we’ll do a different knot at each workshop)
  • These workshops will be held on Saturdays when no other events are scheduled.
  • Participants should bring a box lunch and a beverage for themselves.
  • We’ll do Lunch from 1200 to 1300 (more or less time as required) at M-dock Pavilion accompanied with a short How-to visual aid and discussion.
  • Then we’ll head out on the water as a group on our boats to have a practice run with each boat, take some photos for the website and Captain’s Mug Dinner, and have some fun learning something new and building confidence.
