Learning the Ropes

Sunday’s sail handling class gave newer volunteers a solid overview of the system of lines and rigging that propel a square-rigged sailing vessel. Big thanks to our instructors Ed, Marcus, Rob, Whitney and Danie. Another class is expected to be held in a few weeks. Keep an eye on the newsletter for details.
