Taught aboard OCC's Newport 41, the course covers terminology and rigging, basic sail theory, points of sail, man overboard retrieval, steering techniques, docking, and reefing. Students are required to have completed an intermediate shields class.

The course meets Saturday afternoons, Jan. 14 and 28, from 1:45-5:30 p.m. at OCC's Sailing Center in Newport Beach. Registration fee is $225.

OCC's Sailing Center is located at 1801 W. Pacific Coast Highway, between the Balboa Bay Club and Orange County Sea Scout Base. For information about OCC's sailing classes, phone (949) 645-9412.
