Why the Sailing For Blondes Method to Learn How to Sail?

What is holding you back from becoming a great sailor?
 I’m sure it’s not the wind in your hair and the great experience sailing offers.  But, what are the circumstances that cause difficulty or hesitation?  Are you unsure in your mind exactly how it works or what to do?  
Now, you can achieve understanding, stop your confusion, and accomplish your dreams.  I teach new sailors and sailors wanting to brush up on their skills to understand how to sail.  

Sailing For Blondes, The Simulator Book, Learn Twice as Fast and Twice as Good is a take off on the Dummies series of training books. It gives you the breakthrough to understanding you must have to sail a boat using a PATENT PENDING SAILING SIMULATOR to teach you the necessary points-of-sail.  Utilizing The Sailing For Blondes Method, you will know how to set your sails for sailing any course. It is a unique hands-on-learning solution that makes it easy for your brain to create its own meaning and understanding of how to sail. We give you exactly what you are looking for . . . UNDERSTANDING and NO CONFUSION!

This training is great for beginning sailors who are confused by a lack of understanding of why and how a boat sails. It is also for those wanting to brush up on their skills or for instructors who want a simple solution for explaining the points of sail to their students. Then too, sailors of all levels would enjoy using the simulator to teach their partners or new crew.

You will gain the conceptual knowledge that makes you strong when you are going against the winds or running down a glistening channel under full sail with friends. Be a part of the Sailing For Blondes Community and you won’t be disappointed.  And, it will not break your pocketbook!

Our (1) book (2) simulator and (3) online course offer the three-part, hands-on learning solution on the points of sail. Sailing For Blondes will give you the desired outcome of complete understanding of the concepts necessary to sail a boat. Couple this understanding with practice on the water and then sail to the envisioned world of your dreams.

Learning the points-of-sail is the most important thing you must know to be able to sail a boat.


Why Online Sailing Education?

The future of education is changing from the standard bricks and mortar education venues to large pieces of education being taught online by dedicated and talented instructors, teachers and professors. Time, convenience, quality of education, as well as money is driving students to excel in an online environment.  Sailing For Blondes is on the leading edge of online sailing education offering you the conceptual side of sailing before taking that knowledge to the water.

You will learn twice as fast and twice as good by first mentally mastering sailing concepts prior to going directly to an on-the-water training that lasts for a few days to a week. In this way, you will get your money’s worth from your on-the-water course and/or have faster results when learning to sail with friends.

Sailing is a learning process that continues forever; there is no end-point where the learning stops. The degree earned is in the wind you ride, the friends you make, and the deep impressions it makes in your soul.          ~ Joyce Matlock

Testimonials - See Many More

This book is both entertaining and informative.  It is easy to understand for someone (male, female, blonde, brunette or redhead!) who has never sailed before.  It explains basic concepts for anyone who has sailed before but was confused by the complicated concepts and terminology.  The simulator gave me the understanding of how to sail that I did not have prior to using it.
Libby Miller

After years of wanting to sail, I came out to PPYC in Nashville to a Learning at the Helm event held on Tuesday evenings. Joyce approached me, looked me in the eye and asked "Would you like to learn how to sail?" Of course I said yes and she started to explain the sailing concepts and points of sail in a way that made total sense to me. An hour later we were out on her boat and actually sailing! As we tacked and jibed, it all came together and I couldn't believe how much I gained in such a short time. I have taken that knowledge and used it as my foundation to build on in sailing courses and just sailing out on the water ever since. Joyce helped unlock the mystery of sailing and is a huge part of the passion for sailing I have today.

Great experience with Captain Joyce during a Learning at the Helm session.  We learned a lot as well as having fun.  We're looking forward to the next time.  (All true!!!)  Adina Cherry and Yukito Fukushima
