Basic sailing Instruction
Newby Sailor | Johnson City,, Tennessee United States | 06/20/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an excellent DVD for learning an overview of sailing, the terminology, and the concepts of how a boat reacts to wind direction. All of the mechanics of actually operating a sailboat are first explained in a classroam setting and then demonstrated out on the water. I particularily liked the fact that Gary does his instruction single handed so you can see how one person can raise the sails, and go through all of the steps of sailing and operating the boat when alone. All of the key maneuvers such as tacking, gybing, etc. are demonstrated several times to reinforce each point. Most of the video is on the water footage. I have viewed two other basic sailing DVDs and this is by far the best and most recently produced (2008) If you watch this before starting your sailing lessons, it will be much easier to learn because you will know what to expect."
Great!!! Good video

"This is a very good Sailing video for beginners. The theory is well explained in a classroom setting and then in practice. It was very helpful for me."
Excellent choice for beginners interested in sailing

"This DVD is an interesting mix of classroom an actual hands-on demonstration. I felt that it was worth the cost and time."
Excellent Instruction!

"This DVD is excellent! I am a beginner sailor and feel much more confident in all my sailing abilities after watching this! The sailing instruction is filmed on a sailboat in the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland! I have crewed on sailboats and own my own laser. This video has helped me improve my skills for both. I've even learned how to tie a few new knots. AND I FINALLY know what an accidental gybe is. (I hope not to do that anymore) :) I highly recommend this video - You won't be disappointed."
