This is for anyone who wants to try sailing, and NO EXPERIENCE IS NECESSARY. You will learn the basics of sailing on the water aboard racing sailboats with certified sailing instructors. The clinic will cost $25 with dinner and breakfast being provided to those who camp overnight. Email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information or to sign up.
