Session II Coastal Navigation

$50

with Alice Bean Andrenyak, MMG

Calendar Jun 22, 2021 at 7 pm, runs for 2 weeks

There are many nuggets inside this course that will help you become a safer recreational boater. This course is good for anyone planning to proceed on tidal waters including bays, rivers, and more open coastal Maine waters. You will need to have a chart parallel ruler, a chart pair of dividers, and a chart of Casco Bay to complete this course. You can find these at marine supply stores and online. It doesn't matter whether your Casco Bay chart is paper or waterproof. If you have an old one that is OK as we are learning to navigate. Class meets on Zoom. A meeting invitation will be emailed to you prior to the start of class.

Students must have an audio and video-enabled computer, tablet, or smartphone to participate. No discounts.

Merrymeeting charts a new course this summer in partnership with Sailing Ships Maine. Students will learn to row a dinghy, set and strike sail, steer, navigate, use a marine radio, operate a small outboard, watch the weather, tie knots, and follow basic safety. The primary instructional boat, the Paul Bolger-designed 25 yawl, is a strong, beamy, shallow-draft cruising boat ideal for Merrymeeting Bay. The decks are wide and spacious and will keep students socially distanced as they spend the week outdoors.

Students should bring lunch, snacks, water bottle, sunscreen, a hat, and wear appropriate shoes (no flip flops).

The cost of each session is $295 and includes a one-year membership in U.S. Sailing; U.S. Sailing Small Boat Sailor Certification, full access to the U.S. Sailing Skill-Up App to help students and instructors track individual student accomplishments; National Association of State Boating Law Administrators safety course certification; and a Sailing Ships Maine T-shirt, rope, and journal.
