101 Overview

In this course, you will learn to skipper a sloop-rigged keelboat by day, in light to moderate winds and sea conditions. Learn basic sailing terminology, parts and functions, helm commands, basic sail trim, points of sail, buoyage, seamanship and safety including basic navigation rules to avoid collisions and hazards.

The Harbor 20 is a performance day sailor with classic good looks and plenty of room in the cockpit to make it easy for a small group to learn how to sail.  The mainsail is fully battened and the furling jib is self-tacking.  There is an electric motor to help you get out of the marina.
