Firefly Sailing on the Charles

NOTE: Class is limited to 20 people, and pre-registration is mandatory.

          You must be a MITNA member with a Provisional Rating (we will check)!

          Dress for the likely possibility you may go swimming.

The class will be about 2+ hours long, and will cover
  rigging and basic Firefly sailing, tacks and gybes,
  proper sail trim and balance,
  and maybe some capsize practice.

We will pair people up - each pair will rig and sail a Firefly.

You should watch the rigging videos online as preparation:
