Get ready for sailing! All sailors new to Sail Chicago must attend this orientation class. One 2-1/2 hour class provides an introduction to Sail Chicago and our programs. You will get an overview of how sailboats work, sail theory, nautical terminology, sailing gear, knots, and boating safety. You will learn what you need to be prepared for your first on-the-water lesson. You'll receive your textbook, boating safety materials, and details of your class schedule. This is also a great opportunity to meet other sailors and find out about sailing-related activities for the entire summer.
