The illustrations can be shared with a friend or emailed to one's desktop and printed out for reference.

Taught by a US Coast Guard Licensed Captain and Instructor of American Sailing Association Classes, the lessons are arranged in the order of a typical sailing course. The apps were created using parent company Little Pines Multimedia's popular 'Learn to Sail with Multimedia VOL I and II' CDROM, LearntoSail.Net.
