November 2, 2016 - Hoist the Sails and Get Underway
The 2nd workshop of the series was filled to capacity – 12 women. Experienced sailor and racer, Debbie Noble, of Marblehead, led the workshop. We reviewed some sailing terms, parts of the boat and then launched into the process for hoisting the sails and getting off the mooring. Regardless of the size of boat, the procedure is pretty much the same. We had a mainsail and jib available for demonstration. We got out the lines to review the figure eight, the stopper knot and touched upon the bowline. The Question and Answer period went by quickly. We all left hyped up and ready to go sailing. The hand outs were made available on the facebook page
