First Sail Workshop

Newport, RI

Get hands-on skills training on a Beneteau sailboat at the Newport Boat Show

One of the largest in-water boat shows in the country, and the premier show in New England announces new sailing skills training programs, including the First Sail Workshop, to be taught in Beneteau sailboats. It is the perfect opportunity for sailors to brush up on sailing skills, or learn something new in a low pressure environment, on board one of our First 22 sailboats. Beneteau sailboats were chosen as training boats because of the high build quality, ease of use and overall sailing performance.

The training is provided as part of the At The Helm hands-on boater education by Confident Captain. The courses are taught by USCG licensed captains and there are options for every sailor looking to improve their helming, trimming or crewing skills.

The At The Helm training program at the Newport Boat Show is offering Sailboat Docking and Close Quarter Maneuvering, Advanced Sailboat Handling and Sail Trim, Essential Sailboat Crew or First Mate Skills, and First Sail Workshop. A show ticket for participants is included in the registration and all courses are family friendly. The sailing course descriptions and links to register are available here.
