About the Course

If you’ve ever spent time around a sailor, you know they have a language all their own. Whether you want to take the first small step towards your dream of sailing the Seven Seas or you just want to understand what your friends are saying on your next sailboat outing, Sailing Lingo is the perfect way to get your feet wet. Not only will you learn port from starboard and sheets from halyards, we’ll also teach you the difference between a luff and a leech, what a cunningham is, and three different meanings for the word tack.
