Want to learn to sail or know someone who does?
In September, the Yaquina Bay Yacht Club in Newport will offer beginner’s adult small boat sailing classes. If you’ve never sailed before or just have a little experience sailing with others, this is the class for you. You will build knowledge and confidence through classroom lectures and on-the-water practice in 14′ dinghies.
Topics will include sailing theory, terminology, boat handling, safety, right of way, knots, and docking. Instruction will take place over a three week period and includes classroom lectures (Thur.- Sept. 8th, 15th, 22nd) and on-the-water sailing (Sat/Sun.- Sept. 10-11th, 17-18th, 24-25th).
Class cost is $175. Students must provide a wetsuit, PFD (or life jacket), and a whistle. The Yacht Club has extra PFD’s for those that do not own one. Contact Barry Semple for more information and registration details: email: BearBeat99Public@me.com, phone 541.351.1151.
