On an Even Keel in Annapolis

By Linda Tancs

Annapolis, Maryland is heralded as the Sailing Capital of the World.  Home to the United States Naval Academy, this seafaring city hosts the oldest and largest in-water sailboat show in the country.  If you’d like to be captain of your own ship but lack the skills, then the city’s sailing school just might be the place for you.  Boasting a blend of theory and hands-on practice known as the Annapolis Way, the school offers students an array of beginning to advanced classes.  Novice skippers will learn about boat nomenclature, steering, sail trimming, putting on and taking off of sails, finding wind direction, tacking and jibing maneuvers, points of sail, right of way rules and basic chart reading.  Ship ahoy!
