Problem: Too much racing in sailing instruction and not enough seamanship, adventure, and free sailing.
- Action: Learn Seamanship
Seamanship is the art of caring for and moving boats. It is an art because the wind and the current are always changing and recombining in new ways.
- Action: Just Sail.
Learn your boat. Learn about your boat and all its nuances. It is a beautiful piece of technology. Repair, maintain, love.
- Action: Sail a Tall Ship
Aboard our Sail Training Ships are professionals who know their craft so well they can ease off a dock under sail with a crew of college students. These professionals know seamanship – the care and feeding of a large, complex boat. There are healing powers in the Sea and the boats.
