Beacon Sloop Club Sail Class Begins April 15

Wednesday evening classes run through June 3

The Beacon Sloop Club sail class will start April 15 and run for consecutive Wednesdays through June 3.

In a classroom situation attendees can learn the basics of sailing and potentially become members of the crew on the Woody Guthrie, a historic wooden replica of a gaff-rigged Hudson River sloop, when she is relaunched.

Class meets once a week on Wednesday evenings, from 7 to 9 p.m., and the total cost, including a sailing book, is $50. Classes will be held at the Beacon Sloop Club, a wooden shingled building at the river’s edge across from the Beacon train station.
