Young people go from never having been on a boat before to sailing solo and becoming certified U.S. Sailing Level 1 small boat instructors. Novice sailors learn theory, practice navigation techniques, and gain experience on Rocking the Boat’s fleet of traditional wooden sailboats, modern fiberglass and plastic training dinghies.
My first time on a week-long sailing trip as a Program Assistant is a memory I will not forget. Out on the Long Island Sound, I was astonished by how quickly the students picked up on the basics of sailing. Within two days they were able to sail a boat by themselves. It was in that moment I felt a sense of accomplishment. I successfully taught my students something I love to do.
