     Sailing in heavy weather is every sailor's fear and fantasy. Feeling comfortable sailing in winds of 15-25 kts. on Lake Superior opens up a whole new world of sailing possibilities and adventures. This course is designed to give participants the opportunity to practice techniques critical to heavy weather sailing.  The course will cover reefing sails, heaving to, navigational considerations, steering in big seas, boat preparation, and other storm tactics such as the use of parachute anchors and drogues.  This is an 8-hour, on the water course scheduled when winds are predicted to be 15kts or more and is a great opportunity to expand your sailing horizons in a safe, well-found boat with an experienced captain.
