Fundamentals Ground School (C/S/A)

MEMBERSHIP REQUIRED

Date: Fri Nov 05, 7:00 PM - Sun Nov 07, 2:30 PM CDT

When it’s too cold to sail, it’s time for Ground School! Ground School is for first time sailors to learn skills that prepare them to get out on the water - terminology, knots, parts of the boat, rigging/unrigging the boat, wind, and rules of the road. Sailors will join Ahoy Mate! for hands-on activities such as building their own anemometer, using compass skills to find lost treasure, and more.  No prior experience is required.  Fundamentals Ground School counts as one of the required courses to participate in most other sailing Mariner Events.
