Sailors will be introduced to wind direction and have a chance to sail double-handed, alternating between crew and skipper positions. In addition, they will learn knot tying, sail trim, boat trim, steering, and practice capsize and recovery drills. This will also provide the sailor the opportunity to rig and de-rig a boat and practice land drills.
