Coronavirus: Weathering The Storm

We are all navigating uncharted waters these days during the CoVid-19 pandemic. We here at J World are remaining calm, staying educated and taking reasonable precautions to stay safe and productive. We are fortunate in that our Annapolis season has not yet started, foot traffic on our campus is minimal, and our staff has been able to continue preparing for the season. As each day brings new uncertainties and recommendations for limiting the severity of the outbreak, J World is in a “wait and see” mode with regard to our upcoming scheduled courses in April and beyond. We remain optimistic that we can continue to bring the joy of sailing to our students. That said, the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority and understand that anyone with concerns about their course is welcome to reschedule for a later date when this crisis is over. As always please reach out to us with any questions at (410) 280-2040 or info@jworldannapolis.com

Strategy & Tactics: A Thursday Evening Series

Don’t Miss – Starts Next Week!

This winter we are offering our renowned strategy & tactics lectures in a series of three, bi-weekly Thursday evening sessions. We’ll cover what to do during key points in a race including starting, upwind and downwind.

Our curriculum will cover the racing rules for each situation, strategy and tactics, mark roundings, and more. Finish the series with a much clearer picture of what’s going on while racing and an increased confidence in your practical knowledge. This is an ideal course for the novice and experienced skippers alike as well as crew members looking to increase their all-around knowledge.

Course dates for Winter Seminars are February 6th – STARTING, February 20th – UPWIND and March 5th – DOWNWIND

Each lecture is only $20 and you are welcome to bring your own frosty beverage to enjoy that evening!

Happy Holidays!

J World Annapolis will be closed from Saturday, December 22 through Sunday, December 29. We wish you a peace, joy and hope in this holiday season and fair winds & following seas in the coming year.
