Flying Scot Sailing Lesson - Midwest Sailing Photo #1
19′ Flying Scot
Lessons are generally taught in a 19′ Flying Scot, which is known for its comfort and stability. If your interest is in learning to sail smaller boats like the Sunfish, Laser or Laser Pico, or speedy but stable boat like a the Hobie Wave catamaran, we can include these with your instruction.

We Will Discuss rigging, sailing terms, sailing theory, boat handling, basic safety, man-overboard, capsize and recovery (if applicable), and leaving and returning to the mooring area.
