The classroom session will focus on sailing terminology, boat types and their costs plus sailing theory. The second class will be an on-the-water sailing experience onboard a 26 foot McGregor motor sailboat. The on-the-water class will be divided into groups of 5 people to experience and learn sailing techniques firsthand.
