Lake Champlain, VT, June 18, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Apps4Sailing.com has released Parts of a Sailboat, Learn to Tie Knots and one free app, How to Turn a Sailboat for Android users on Google Play. The free app features "Coming About: Turning a sailboat into and through the wind."
Included with each app lesson is a Sailing Terms Glossary for each topic and graphic illustrations for reference. The illustrations can be shared with a friend or emailed to one's desktop and printed out for reference. For all paid apps, a credit of the purchase price will be applied towards purchase of the upcoming Learn to Sail Vol I or Vol II Apps.
"It is exciting that mobile technology has advanced the way it has," states Linda Cullum, CEO of LearnToSail.Net. "I could see the value of being able to learn to sail while on the go in a new and fun way. These first lessons are aimed to be a preliminary course and will educate newbies on foreign sailing topics and terms in advance so that they can get the most out of their sailing education investment. This method of receiving information also provides the opportunity for reviewing technique just before heading out or while on the water."
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.
The lessons are also run on Apple iPad and iPhone format as individual movie files. These are available at Apps4Sailing.com.
They also can be downloaded and played on PC or Mac.
