Sails: Design and Construction with Captain Katelinn Shaw
February 6, 2021
Join us as Captain Katelinn Shaw kicks off our February Virtual Dock Talks with a live Saturday Seminar about sails.
The winter months are a good time to do your sail repair. While we're at it, let's take a look at how a sail is put together. We'll discuss the canvas they're made of and the steps involved in designing and building a traditional sail. You'll never look at one the same way again! We'll end with a herringbone repair stitch so have your palm and needle at the ready.
