Learn to crew and helm a sailboat.
Challenge yourself to learn the fundamentals of sailing through this inclusive course for active military and veterans.
The program uses both pre-sailing ashore theory and end-of-day review to develop the fundamental skills needed to enjoy sailing.
Each sailboat has an experienced sailor as your personal onboard coach working with three military community participants. Participants are sailing the boat and the coach is with you for safety and to walk you through how to apply sailing theory and seamanship skills we've covered.
This is an inclusive program open to all genders, ages, and abilities.
