Session 1: Mates
Mates build on the skills they learned in Seamen. They gain confidence through time on the water. Sailors will be required early in the program to sail independently in Optimists. They learn to land at a mooring and dock, basic racing skills and advanced knots. In addition, they increase their knowledge of navigation and basic weather patterns as they master the rigging, sailing, and derigging of an Optimist.
