    If you have not visited www.sailingcourse.com, it is time to do so. Sailing
    Course.COM is a US SAILING website, free for public viewing, and currently
    has a new easy-to-use FLASH navigational interface. The site currently
    houses:

    Six sailing courses and one powerboating course, with a total of eight online
    computer graded tests. 660 text documents with 254,000 words of text,
    numerous pictures and illustrations.
    89 Video Presentations, 16 animated gifs, 6 PowerPoint presentation, 8 FLASH
    presentations, and 2 interactive JAVA programs.

    Recent Website Expansions Include:

    "Introduction To Sailboat Racing" This section is for the sailor who wishes
    to get started in racing it is divided into two parts "Basics of Sailboat
    Racing" and "The Basic Rules Of Sailboat Racing" and uses 16 Computer Animated
    Videos, two FLASH Slide presentations along with a MS Producer Video
    Presentations (and for Dial-Up users there is an HTML version). After
    reviewing the two sections you can take a 20 question racing test to test your
    knowledge.

    “The Many Ways To Experience Sailing” This section discusses the different
    types of sailing and is targeted to the non-sailor. It is available in HTML,
