Come sailing with us
WBFV wants to bring sailing to veterans, future veterans, and their families.
Expect some hands-on training, and be prepared to learn and work. We are looking for candidates who want to continue sailing following the training.
We do ask that you bring a contribution appropriate to your circumstances, and stay afterwards to wash the boat and enjoy some camaraderie!
Here is a typical timeline and some important details:
1045 Show time at one of our docks
1100 Walk through and safety briefing
1130 Push off the dock, heading out to GG bridge with 1.5kts current in our favor
1530 Return to the dock (we could stay out longer depending on weather/swells and how everyone is feeling)
1600 Help to put gear away and wash down the boat
What to wear -
It’s ideal to bring layers that you can peel off if it gets warmer, or if we’re back at the dock relaxing afterwards.
A wind breaker (shell) for an outer layer is usually best with a sweater (or sweatshirt) underneath on top of another layer or two. For shoes, wear shoes (with socks) that have good grip, but non-marking soles (no sandals or open toed shoes). If you’d like to wear a hat, it will need to be strapped onto you.
We look forward to hosting you!
