Women’s Sailing – Monthly Lunch & Learn

February 11 @ 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

This Month's Lunch & Learn will be covering ASA 101 materials.  Instruction will be led by Jennifer Tenney with help from others.  While this will not get you your ASA 101, with additional study and practice you should be able to just take the exam.  There will be a half hour of classroom time while we eat and then we will head out and sail for 2 hours.  Then we will be back in the classroom and finish up with a practice test.

Bring something to share for lunch and a drink and be ready to learn or to help teach.
