A good way to learn how how to sail is to help sail a boat during races at Berlin Yacht Club.  This is called "crewing."  Often members who own a boat ("skipper") need someone crew for them on race day.

 It does not cost anything to crew, and you do not have to be a club member.  BYC has many patient skippers who are willing to teach someone with little to no prior experience how to crew.  This is a great way to get out on the water, have fun, and see if sailing is the sport for you.  For more information about crewing, contact Tom Dawson at This email address is being protected from spambots.
