A Lesson in Capsizing

— Afternoon students at the Belle Haven Marina summer sailing school practiced the fine art of capsizing and recovering Sunfish last Thursday afternoon, June 28, in the shallows at the marina. The students aged 8 to 15 spent the week learning how to rig a Sunfish, tie the knots used in the rigging, read navigational markers, the points of sail, right of way rules, man-overboard drills and mooring and docking drills. The classes are offered weekly through August in the morning and afternoon. The marina is located at 6401 George Washington Memorial Parkway. For more information visit www.saildc.com
