I understand plebes have little time for anything that starts with the word 'recreation' but am wondering about sailing. DS will be participating in a winter sport and on B-split. But on their free time (lol) are they allowed to take out the smaller sailing vessels? I know I have read in the past somewhere on this forum that they can compete in waterfront in a smaller way on B-split ( I believe it was a thread about band, lol). He is not really wanting to take on another sport but curious about recreational opportunities. I believe J.D. Mentioned taking out a sailboat on Sunday mornings ( sounds like one of the most spiritual things I can think of). This question is not just pertaining to plebe year but are midshipman allowed to use the small sailboats on the weekends or what is the policy? Do they have to be certified in some way? And if so, how do they accomplish that? Thanks in advance for the information.
