Learn about Sailing Session 4

7:30 PM - 9:00 PM
Event Category: Seminar/Training

The course will start at 7.30pm at the HBYC clubhouse and go to approximately 9pm. Note that the bar is open on Thursday evenings in case you want to arrive earlier.

The structure of the course is flexible with the aim to give a broad understanding of sailing concepts. Content will include

  • Sailing terms and definitions
  • Sailing in Port Phillip
  • Knots
  • Weather
  • Understanding different yacht types
  • How to be a useful crew member

I intend on it being a relaxed format with plenty of opportunities for questions and maybe a quiz or two! If you know of others who might be interested, let me know as we have availability.

If you wish to contact me, best way is email to davidjudge1999@hotmail.com or 0417 526 438.
