Looking for some NEW adventure? Maybe on the water? A nice windy day? You are in luck as TSRA is offering a beginner's sailing class the morning of October 9th from 9 to 12 at the Vivrett Creek Public Use Area on Percy Priest Lake. The Class will be taught by John McFadden and will cover the basics of sailing, including, boat nomenclature, points of sail, righting a capsized boat and more. You will need your own PFD and water shoes (closed toed if you have them) as we will all be standing in waist deep water for the first part of the class. If it is cool, bring your foul weather paddling gear. YOU WILL GET WET! By the end of the class you'll be sailing and I'll call you skipper!
We will be using two small boats, a vintage Laser racing class and a Sunfish recreational boat. Each participant will have the opportunity to sail each boat with a partner.
PFDs are REQUIRED to be worn, no exceptions! Bring water and snacks and/or lunch if you desire.
