Wat je gaat doen
Our Sailing Basics class picks up from our Introduction to Sailing and will give you the basic sailing skills. We will spend additional time on rigging and tacking, and move on to cover jibing, sail trim, sailing upwind and downwind, and collision avoidance rules. We will spend a short period of time on the boat at the dock, going over some of the information, then head out for an educational and skill-building hands-on experience. We leave from the Canton area of Baltimore and sail into the harbor. From there, we typically move to the more open water of the Patapsco river. We limit the experience to five people to ensure that each gets quality hands-on time with various components of sailing. All of this is under the instruction of a certified US Sailing Master Instructor Trainer and US Coast Guard licensed Captain on a 36' sailboat documented as a US Coast Guard commercial vessel which exceeds required safety and insurance requirements.
I am the founder and director of SeaAffinity, Inc, a Baltimore based non-profit that combines my two passions of sailing and helping people learn. My wife, Suzanne, and I learned to sail over 20 years ago, on small boats. Since then, we have owned and sailed close to 50 different boats of all sizes in the Chesapeake and the Caribbean, and delivered sailboats on the east coast. I am certified as a US Sailing Instructor, Instructor Trainer, and Master Instructor Trainer, and a member of US Sailing's National Faculty, the group that develops and writes US Sailing's training materials.
