Description

NOTE: Class is limited to 6 people, and pre-registration is mandatory.

          You must be a MITNA member with a Basic Firefly Rating (we will check).

          You need to have spent at least 3-4 hours sailing a sloop-rigged boat!

          Dress for the likely possibility you will go swimming.

 

The class will be about 2+ hours long, and will cover:

  Rigging, unrigging, care of the boat, and basic 420 sailing

  Skippering with a crew, crewing for a skipper

  Proper sail trim and balance

  Tacks and gybes

  Maybe some capsize practice.

 

We will pair people up - each pair will rig and sail a 420.

No videos yet, but can see them online at various websites! Note: we do not have the spinnaker and trapeze rigs you may see out there.
