Looking for a new and challenging sailing experience? Check out MSA's New Big Boat Program Designed for sailors age 15 to 19 who want to explore larger cruising and ‘offshore’ boats. The course will give them a chance to sail on a broad range of boats from high-speed sport boats to large-scale cruisers. Sailing competence is required. The program is hands-on with on-the-water instruction, so sailors should be strong enough to handle the greater loads on sheets and halyards demanded by the bigger vessels. Sailors will learn to steer and trim, anchor and dock, coastwise navigation, and boat maintenance, all within the context of a big boat. Register at online at www.manchestersailing.org
