wOMEN'S sAILING sEMINAR
On May 20 and 21, 2017, The Corinthian Women celebrate 32 years of inspiring women to sail by hosting the Women's Sailing Seminar (WSS), a weekend of instruction packed with sailing and fun. It is designed for beginning women sailors as well as those who would like to refresh their sailing skills.
Both mornings begin with breakfast followed by active classroom instruction in the upstairs ballroom at CYC. The first day covers preparing to sail (clothing, safety, equipment), boat terminology, how sailboats work, reading the wind and points of sail, and some knots, for good measure. Day 2 reviews Day 1, and adds finer points about rules of the road, basic navigation, tides and weather, sail trim and more.
Both afternoons are spent on the Bay, sailing, in small groups so students gets a chance to put their new knowledge to work. Each boat has an experienced skipper and an instructor to assist and answer any questions. All volunteers are patient teachers/sailors. Having once been novices themselves, they are delighted to be sharing their passion of sailing with you.
The Seminar finishes on Sunday afternoon with a 'We-Did-It! Graduation Party' on the deck. Although the party’s fun, reports are that the sailing is the best part.
Become more knowledgeable and confident as you begin or renew your interest in sailing. The weekend is instructional and fun (check our Facebook page). Bring a friend and get a discount.
