The lesson will typically start at the water's edge with raising of the
mast and spars, attaching the tiller/rudder assembly, and inserting
the dagger board.
Next, basic instruction of how to right a capsized boat and how to
counter balance the boat by shifting weight is given.
Next, Stacy and the student head out on the water. Students will
be instructed on how to sail upwind, downwind, and across the
wind. Students will also be instructed how to stop the boat and
return to the origination point.
A typical lesson will run up to 3 hours, depending upon weather
conditions and the student's goals. The first lesson with a
beginner is done with Stacy on the boat with the student.
Depending on the how quickly the student takes to sailing, the
second lesson will be either with Stacy on the boat with the
learner or on a separate boat with Stacy shadowing and
coaching. All Sunfish lessons are one to one instruction.
$ 80 if the student provides the boat
