Chesapeake Experience is now hosting a program for sailors to learn about sailing a keelboat, on our new J30.
Each sailor will gain familiarity with the boat and learn each position. They will learn a variety of skills which include the following:
Organization and Communication in a larger team
Using a compass and data collection
Measurement and tuning of the masts and sails
Understanding weather and sail selection
General boat handling and operation under sail and power (They will all learn how to back a big boat into a slip!)
Due to COVID-19 this program will be very limited in having a maximum of 5 students on Saturdays and 5 on Sundays. Unfortunately students won’t be allowed to switch days once we start.
Please reach out to for any questions.
There will be two groups, one on Satuday and one on Sunday. We will sail out of Maryland Marina in Bowleys Quarters from 10-3 on the day you register for.
Saturdays - December 19, 26 and January 2, 9
Sundays - December 20, 27 and January 3, 10
