Any new member must inform the skipper that this is his or her first outing. The skipper will show you the boat and its components and review basic procedures. With the skipper or crew, you will go over the boat checklist before departure. The skipper will then review the process to leave the dock with the entire crew and assign you a role during this maneuver. Once on the river, the skipper and crew will share the basic sailing techniques with you. The outing will take place in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
