Sailing Coaches

Members who are happy to be Sailing Coaches

Lud Kimbrough has suggested that another way to improve participation at FBYC is to provide as easy way for those who are not very familiar with sailing or sailboat racing to gain the assistance of others who are more experienced. Some of those more experienced members do not currently own boats, and are making themselves available to coach those who may need a little help.
