                Outline:
                Introduction:

                The crew will welcome you aboard, introduce themselves, and give you a briefing about
                the course, how you will work in teams, and safety procedures. You will then be divided
                up into teams as follows:

                2 for winches / 2 for ropes / 2 for sail handling (each group supervised by 1 crew)

                You will then be shown around the yacht, and explained the different yachting terms:
                starboard, portside, galley, bow, stern, bridge, head, mainsail, genoa, and genneka etc.
                You will also be shown and explained the safety devices on board, and the navigational
                equipment.

                The crew will then demonstrate how to steer, how to operate the winches, positioning of
                the boat to the wind, and how to position the sails.

Practical:

The teams will then manoeuvre the boat, put the main sail and genoa up, participating with steering, winch and rope work.

Once the boat is under sail the engines will be shut off, and the teams can then experience true wind power.

The Skipper will then explain the wind angle and speed, and the feel of the wind velocity according to the angle of the boat.

After an hour the teams will then be rotated and as a group will perform a tack and gibe – to put the boat on a return course.

On the return leg, the teams will be rotated again – so that every person will have experience on each station i.e. sail handling, winch, and ropes.
The teams will put down the sails and pull back all ropes, and return to the mooring.

On completion of the introduction each team member will be given a certificate to show they participated and sailed on Universe.
