Sorry.  The 2014 program is sold out.

Building joy and passion for sailing, Ensign Fleet 51 is pleased to host this season's NBC Adult Sailing program.  NBC Adult Sailing is available to both members and non-members, and enrollment is now open to the first 20 people who register. The Adult program offers skill development to novice sailors and those who may not be completely comfortable on their own, out on the water.  If you've thought about racing, but feel a little intimidated, here's where you'll learn all you need to get started.  

Topics to be covered include:

  • Becoming Aware - What's Going on Around You
  • Rigging / Unrigging
  • Making the Boat Go
  • Wind Direction
  • Points of Sail
  • Knots / Lines
  • Steering
  • In and Out of Irons
  • Upwind/Downwind Sailing
  • Tacking / Jibing
  • Departure / Landing
  • Rules & Safety
  • Overboard Recovery

SPACE IS LIMITED!!  The program meets once a week, for 8 weeks, from 6:00pm on Thursday evenings, beginning Thursday, June 5th.  Want a spot?  Download the agreement form.  While there is no cost to the program, there is a $50 refundable "place holder" fee that is returned to all participants at the conclusion of the program.  We do this in an effort to make sure those who sign up, show up.  When all spots are taken, we will send out an email alert that enrollment is closed.  Checks received thereafter will be returned.
