On Line Sailing School

With the end of the open water season here in the north...

I won't be able to get my keel boat and bareboat training till next spring...

Are there any "on line" sources/schools/lessons you reccomend to fill in the "book learning" stages of sailing school...terminology, sail trim theory, navigation, etc...?

I know nothing beats time on the water, but would be nice to be up on the difference between a halyard a stay and a shroud...

If you have Netflix, check out "The Annapolis Book of Seamanship" DVD series. Really, really well done.

Sorry, no Netflicks...

I did do a free sample from "NauticEd" A Free Sailing Course by NauticEd Sailing School on Sail Trim and found it quite informative...

Also did their free one on Nautical "right of way" (stand-on)...again quite informative...

Now the next level they want me to pay for, which is fine, but was wondering if there are other "free" interactive sites or any that come more reccomended or recognized ?

Try this for navigation, otherwise you can find a school to that teaches ASA 105 (Coastal Navigation) near you I am sure.

Boat US has an online boater safety course, which is actually time consuming and requires some study. It isn't just a written test for your driver permit. You can choose your state and, in some cases, it qualifies for state safety requirements and can reduce insurance premiums.
