Boca Ciega Yacht Club Adult Sail School
March 16, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm$250.00
The objectives of BCYC’s Basic Sail School are to produce graduates who can rig the sails of a small boat; assess the wind; sail away from the dock; perform the basic maneuvers of tacking, jibing, and trimming sails; and sail safely back to the dock. We also provide information about federal and state safety requirements, emergency procedures, and “local knowledge” of nearby waters. This is accomplished during five Wednesday evening classes, and four weekends of “hands-on” sailing experiences aboard a fleet of exciting new Catalina 16.5’ self-righting, self-bailing sailboats on beautiful Boca Ciega Bay.
