Sail is a complete sail course beginning with basic boat designs, rigging and sail processes for the non-sailor, novice or experienced sailor.
The course proceeds into the physical aspects of sailing, sail applications, marlinespike, helmsmanship, and handling of more difficult sailing conditions, navigation rules, and an introduction to heavy weather sailing.
The course also addresses nomenclature, rigging, safety, sail processes and then tackles the physical aspects of sailing forces and techniques. Appendices provide an introduction to sailboat racing and sailing in Canadian waters.
This new Sail course includes a single volume Student Manual developed in cooperation with the Canadian Sail & Power Squadron.
