Crewing on a racing sailboat is not so easy that a caveman could do it, but it is nowhere near as hard to learn as you might think. Fishing Bay Yacht Club is offering a course for people interested in getting involved in a team sport that will challenge the most competitive and give a lifetime of enjoyment to anyone who loves outdoor sports and good fun.
