I teach either hands-on or hands-off depending on the students learning style. I will outline all of the key parts of a sailing vessel and teach proper "rules of the road" and how to handle a boat under sail with ease.
I use the curriculum and methodology developed by U.S. Sailing and U.S. Windsurfing. Beginner classes will start with theory and land-based training before moving on to on-the-water practice. Classes for experienced sailors and windsurfers can be tailored based on the participants skill level and topics of interest.
I have taught kids for the past two summers how to sail, I have my CanSail 3 and I teach the first two levels CanSail 1 and 2, I break the theory classes down as much as I can so it is understandable. I also try to make the classes fun and interesting. All my theory classes are based on the CanSail theory books, which you need to know to pass levels.
I like to teach by having a core topic and making fun and enjoyable ways of remembering and learning the chosen subject. I prefer to get as hands on as possible as I feel most is learnt in sailing by trial and error.
The classes are made as entertaining and easy adoption of knowledge. You can be made via online classes in case of incompatibility to attend. It may make notes or help them to study more easily. Works may be made of any material. the hours and the methodology of classes by number of students and the purpose thereof is adjusted.
I have been sailing for more than 15 years and I have crossed the Mediterranean Sea several times and surrounded the entire Iberian Peninsula. Now I live in Las Palmas de Gran Canarias preparing my next adventure and I would love to share my knowledge with anyone who needs to know more about the sea, weather and of course the correct "trim" of the sails of your boat.
