Smile Free Sailing Videos?

Could someone recommend a basic sailing video for novices? While I'm an experienced sailor, my new wife and partner (75 years of age) has NEVER been on a boat, especially the one we're planning to buy for inland lake Ohio sailing (27' Hunter or Catalina). I'd like her to feel comfortable, at the very least, behind the wheel.

Thanks for your advice. If I could borrow one, I'd be willing to return it in a few weeks.

Do you have Netflix? They have a pretty good selection...all 5 of the Annapolis Book DVD's, plus about a half dozen others from beginning sailing to anchoring and navigation.

Check out Netflix's Sailing with Penny Whiting video. She's a very good teacher out of the land of OZ.

I agree. I think it's the best one. It moves along too.

I'm going to watch her again this evening. If I were down under, I'd definitely pay her for lessons. The Endless Summer is a beautiful boat to look at too.

Try googling - RYA - Teach me to sail. There are a number of series you can view or read up on.

US Sailing has a good series of videos also, however you can't go wrong with Penny Whiting! Also check out YouTube and BoatTV.
