These sessions in the basics of sailing a barquentine are designed to make your cruise more knowledgeable and thus more enjoyable. When you finish you should be able to tell a barque from a barquentine, know how to brace the yards and trim the spanker, read the coming weather in cirrus clouds, and understand something about a noon sight and dead reckoning.
