Robert Kahle has been a member of the Windward Sailing Club since 1994 when he took the Learn to Sail course at Lehigh Carbon Community College. Being a member of the sailing club introduced him to other members, some who owned large sailboats and sailed on the Chesapeake Bay. His curiosity and interest in sailing became a passion.
He began assisting with the Learn to Sail course, teaching sailing terminology and the physics of sailing. The course has been presented yearly by the Windward Sailing Club since it organized in 1972. For the past seven years Robert has been the class coordinator.
The purpose of the course is to teach the sport of sailing on an introductory level, with an emphasis on safety on the water.
