Marlinspike Online Sail Training Module
This is an online program designed for new incoming volunteers.
Students gain a foundation of language and skill sets before they step onto their assigned vessel so they can be a contributing member of the crew almost immediately. Specific sections of Eliademy are Marlinspike Seamanship (where they learn the basics of knot tying), Sail Theory (where they learn the basic vocabulary of different points of sail and different parts of a sail), Docking (where they learn the theoretical mechanics of docking a vessel, and the commands for docklines), Watch Standing, Engine Room Basics, and much more. Students work with an online instructor who guides them through the program and answers any questions.
