"Dinghy sailing is a core sailing skill." So declares a brief Hoofers Sailing Club instructional and safety video shot on May 4 intended for new and prospective members of the venerable UW club. The video shows the launching and sailing of the club's yellow and orange sailing dingies known as Badger Techs -- the basic training vessels of the fleet.

"It's perfect for instruction," the club explains. "Its simple rigging is easy to learn for beginning sailors, it's easy to right when it has capsized, it comes up dry, and the heavy-duty hull is designed to withstand a little bump here and there."

This 111-second training video follows below.


Members of this summer's Hoofers Sailing instruction are introduced in a video shot during their training weekend back in March. More details about learning to sail are available in the Hoofers program overview, including instruction, manuals and rules, and and online tutorials.

"If you're a UW student and not in the ridiculously cheap Sailing Club," declares Emy L. Nosti in a photo essay featuring the waters of Lake Mendota as seen from atop a keelboat in the Hoofers fleet, "you don't know what you're missing."

If you have a video about Madison or by Madisonians, please consider adding it to the Isthmus YouTube group or send a message.
