Students can learn to steer on a wheel, grind a winch and jump halyards!

Participants will meet NCS instructors in a TBD location in town at 9:15am, and be back at the same location for pick-up at 12:15pm. Interested sailors should call the Nantucket Community Sailing Office on Monday morning starting at 9:00am at 508-228-6600 to register. Life jackets will be provided and closed-toe shoes will be mandatory. Registration will be handled on a first-come, first-serve basis and limited space is available.
