WHEN: Tuesday evenings 6:00 - 9:00, April 12 through May 24, 2022 (sometimes boats will add alternate days due to schedule conflicts or weather which may extend the season).
COVID PROTOCOLS: All participants will be required to upload or provide proof of vaccination plus booster. Masks will be required when a distance of 6 feet cannot be maintained.
WHO: Individuals who are 18 or older may take our class. Couples must register as individuals as each one is a "spot" on a boat. We tend to split couples onto two different boats out of the same marina.
REQUIREMENTS: participants must provide their own personal floatation device (PFD), a warm/waterproofed coat, a warm hat, and tennis shoes. Must be able to move around on the deck of a boat under sail. A more complete list of optional items will be provided on the first night of class.
WHERE: TWSA members volunteer their boats that are moored at marinas throughout Commencement Bay. Students will be assigned to a boat based on their experience, and the best location for them (Tacoma ,Gig Harbor or Port Orchard). Boat assignment is announced the first night of class.
WHAT: students are placed on boats with other women of similar experience. A curriculum of skills and experiences is implemented over the six weeks of class based on USSailing and ASA standards. Each boat is led by a knowledgeable instructor- most of whom are women.
COST: The fee is $195 which includes a $35 TWSA membership (required by our insurance company).
