CASCO BAY, MAINE
SAILING INSTRUCTIONS FOR WOMEN
3 day live-aboard classes aboard the 44′ ketch Avatrice
Women Under sail is a beginner to intermediate course aboard AVATRICE, a roomy 44 ft. ketch. The course addresses the very basics of boat handling and sailing, and builds upon itself with classes each morning, and lots of hands on experience for the rest of the day. The students learn the complexities of chart reading and navigation, and get a good taste of the variety of conditions that coastal Maine can offer. This class is a “deck” upon which I am able to share my passion, and knowledge of sailing in a safe, exciting, and always exhilarating environment
