Sailing employs wind acting on sheets to propel a craft on the surface of the water. TZMP conducts cruising coastal ocean sailing and inshore sailing on small and medium sailing craft.

Wind and currents are important factors to plan on for both offshore and inshore sailing. Predicting the availability, strength and direction of the wind is key to using its power along the desired course. Ocean currents, tides and river currents may deflect a sailing vessel from its desired course.

Nomenclature and concepts are first studied by reading and discussion in a class setting. Basic sailing skills are practiced in a small personal sailboat. As skills improve, the size of vessel may increase. Aquanautics skills and rescue swimming experience is a prerequisite for TZ sailors. Go Teame!

DEPARTMENTS
All activities conducted by Teame Zazzu are operated under officially designated TZ Departments, each of which performs authorized coordinated action in conjunction with interdepartmental support units as determined by mission profiles, research orders, committee requests, maintenance requirements, unit traditions, and in accordance with lawful orders issued by properly designated legal authorities, training interfaces and partner agencies
Features


OPERATION ICE LAKE: A relaxing paddle with a K9 amongst the floating ice in an alpine lake is the perfect time to practice cold-water procedures.
Keywords: - Aquanautics - - K9 - - -
Sudden immersion in cold water can cause physiological reactions that can overcome mental focus and substantially increase the risk of drowning. Working with K9 units in near-freezing conditions means planning and taking deliberative action.


SAILS AWAY: Teame members conduct cruising coastal ocean sailing and inshore sailing on small and medium sailing craft.
Keywords: - Aquanautics - - - - Swimming - - Sailing -
Nomenclature and concepts are first studied by reading and discussion in a class setting. Basic sailing skills are practiced in a small personal sailboat. As skills improve, the size of vessel may increase. Aquanautics skills and rescue swimming experience is a prerequisite for TZ sailors.


HIGH AND MIGHTY HELICOPTERS: Teame members train and drill for mission profiles including casualty medical evacuation, personnel transport, search and rescue, cargo lift, arial deployment, ground mission support, recon scouting, and forward air control.
Keywords: - Readiness - - Flying - - Training - - High n Mighties -
Deployment speed, flight plan flexibility, maintenance and crew costs, and sensor package options make helicopters a key instrument for mission planning and situational response, and require Pathfinder training, pilot training, air medical training, and skydive experience.


HI LINE CONVOY: World-class vehicles in a close convoy maneuver exercise with flanking motorcycle elements
Keywords: - Fashion - - Exercises - - Autonomous Vehicles -
Safety and road situational awareness were key factors in this patrol. Teame members practiced good radio communication and defensive driving techniques.


OPERATION SNOWDRIFT: Tracked emergency response vehicles for rescuing stranded detached groups are used during active field operations during extreme winter conditions.
Keywords: - Disaster - - Readiness - - Snow - - Weather -
TZ operatives coordinated with emergency response personnel to conduct high-hazard rescues of operational groups in the wilderness environment. Blizzard conditions neutralized 4x4 transport vehicles and pinned groups down during the night.
