Seeing the wind. Trimming your sails.

Seeing the wind sounds like folly to non-sailors. Learning the important skill of knowing where the wind is coming from and how it is changing is a skill that can be picked up in a few outings and perfected over a long sailing career. We will identify many tools to use to help you learn to read the wind, and how the continual development of this fundamental skill will make sailing more fun. 

 

We will learn about sailing things, socialize and enjoy refreshments courtesy of Tumbleweed Sailing.
