Assumed knowledge: Competent Crew level and above
This session is about sailing, sailing, sailing! We will revisit the principles of how sails work, but mainly this will be about practical sailing.
* Picking up and leaving mooring buoys, under sail
* Dropping and weighing anchor, under sail
* Close quarters sailing
* Sail trim
Explanation, demonstration, practise and debriefing will all be used to improve your sailing skills and help improve your reactions if something unplanned ever happens, like your engine failing or refusing to start in a busy harbour (when else will it happen?!). As well as all being good practise for dealing with a MOB.
