Learn to sail on Flushing Meadows Corona Park’s scenic Meadow Lake with the help of The American Small Craft Association, or TASCA.  This comprehensive program includes two lecture classes on the theoretical aspects of sailing and six on-the-water classes.  Participants will learn to tie knots, rig a boat, and understand using the wind (as your engine) to sail the boat.

You may attend either the first lecture on Saturday, April 30 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., or the makeup lecture on Wednesday, May 4 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  The second lecture is scheduled for Saturday, May 14 from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., or the makeup lecture on Wednesday, May 25 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  You will also be required to take a series of on-the-water classes starting the week of May 2.  You may choose between evening (6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.) classes on Mondays, Tuesdays, or Thursdays, or a morning class (10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.) on Saturdays.

Participants will also be required to complete a successful swim test at a local pool on Sunday, July 24.
