    Many new students experience a steep learning curve with nautical vocabulary and beginning sailing concepts. Fortunately, online resources and "apps" are readily available to support a student's sailing skills. The following YouTube link provides a basic tutorial on the basics of sailing, including terminology and points of sail:

    Learning How to Sail: A Step-by-Step Guide to Sailing

    Additionally, students can access apps  to evaluate current weather, wind, and tides. The following screenshot includes icons for a variety of apps that help a sailor evaluate weather conditions, ensuring a safe and fun adventure on the water. Ask your instructors about their favorite sailing app or online resource.  Happy sailing!

    P.S. Thanks to TWSA student, Cathy Cloran, for sharing the YouTube link.

    Thank you TWSA leaders, boat captains, teachers, and students for an outstanding sailing skills class and dinner buffet on April 9, 2019. Students learned about sailing terminology, points of sail, knot-tying, use of radio, and proper equipment and apparel. We’re all looking forward to spring sailing classes beginning this week. See you out on Commencement Bay! ⛵️
