The Manhasset Bay Sailing Foundation and Schreiber High School have teamed up to offer sailing classes to high school students. About 40 students have enrolled in a two-part pilot program to learn the fundamentals of sailing. The first session was held this fall and included two outings on Ideal 18's, plus six classroom sessions. The first class was a demonstration on how to rig a Blue Jay with spinnaker with subsequent classes viewing sailing videos, plus classroom instruction. Next spring, more time on the water is planned for these new sailors.
