2:15 – 3:30  Shorthanded Sailing Techniques

Sailing alone or with just one other person presents intriguing challenges. John & Amanda Neal profile skills, techniques and equipment that promote self-reliance, confidence and safety. They’ll also address watch keeping, sail handling, overboard retrieval and sleep deprivation. Highlights and resources are detailed in a free handout.
