Squadron offers sailing course

The Deception Pass Sail and Power Squadron is offering a sail course this fall in Oak Harbor.

The dates of the course have not been set, but the class will start in mid to late October.

The course is designed to serve the needs of all sailors, from beginners to those with experience.

The course starts with basic sailboat designs and nomenclature, rigging, safety and sail processes. It will then tackle the physical aspects of sailing forces and techniques, sail adjustments, marlinespike, helmsmanship and handling more difficult sailing conditions, navigation rules and an introduction to heavy weather sailing.

The cost for members is approximately $55; non-members are welcome.

For more information or to register, contact Pat Waters at 360-720-2589 or frenchsailor@comcast.net
