Novice to Advanced Sailors - Come sail with us! This weekend event is
for new sailors as well as those who have some time on the water under
their belt (or lifejacket!) by attending a Mariner event in the past
(in person or online). On Saturday Sailors will learn new skills and
practice land and water drills. On Sunday they will get up early and
get out on the water for a fun day of putting into practice what they
learned the day before.
Newer sailors will learn or review basics of sailing, including wind speed measurement in knots; parts of the boat; rigging and unrigging; and right of way. They will get to practice departing from land, steering and turning the boat, and returning to shore safely.
Sailors with sea legs (or lake legs) will learn or review safety position, departing and landing, steering, and tacking. They will gain proficiency and confidence in departing from land, steering and turning the boat, and returning to shore safely. This group will also have opportunities to develop leadership skills mentoring newer sailors.
It will be a weekend of fun on land and on the water with drills and games at Bluebonnet Shores Girl Scout Camp (formerly Camp Kachina) on Lake Belton!
