Open to all women.
This seminar is designed for beginning sailors or those who would like to refresh their sailing skills.
This year The Corinthian Women celebrates its 28th year of inspiring women to sail.
We begin each morning with a light breakfast followed by classroom instruction. The first day covers what to wear, what to bring and what to leave at home, how to check weather and tides, nautical terminology, how a sailboat works, how the wind works, points of sail and safety. The second day focuses on sailing and seamanship: rules of the road (don’t mess with those big ships), basic navigation, man overboard recovery and knots.
After lunch we go aboard for hands-on learning on the water. Students put into practice what was learned that morning!
Each boat will have an experienced skipper and an instructor to guide you and answer any questions. All of our volunteers are patient teachers/sailors, having once been novices themselves, they are delighted to be sharing their passion of sailing with you.
With interest in sailing and America's Cup swelling, this seminar is an excellent opportunity to get a taste of the world of sailing in a beautiful and historic setting.
We plan to help you become more knowledgeable and confident as you begin or renew your interest in sailing. We also plan to have a lot of fun. We look forward to seeing you at the seminar!
