a sailboat and sailing orientation class?

Ladies, I'm thinking this only because some of the ladies that come to my YC are somewhat interested in learning their way around the sailboats. Secretly some admit they don't want the hubby or BF to be there or try to "help" .

Now I'm far from being any kind of instructor. I don't think it needs to be a formal "learn how to sail" class and more more like a primer type of thing. Because, some want at the very least know what's what on sailboats and what all those sailing terms mean, I think it's a good idea.

So.. I'm looking for some input and ideas on making it happen before I make the request of my YC for the time and use of the meeting hall. Does this sound like you would want to attend if you knew it was available to you? II would have! I'm pretty sure I can find an instructor in the area also, since my YC has had other classes for boaters.

thanks in advance ladies!
