Our US Sailing certified instructors will assess your student's experience level and provide instruction methods to match their ability. From Intro to sailing, sailing adventures, to learning about racing, we will get you out on the water and having fun! This summer each week is tailored for all ages and abilities. With the variety of boats we have, we can accommodate all experience levels. As always, we will teach our sailors great dock, beach and boat safety as they learn to sail. 

Classes begin with land-based "chalk talk" discussions and demonstrations followed by an introduction to boat handling in shallow water and finally open water practice.

Our fleet of boats includes Optis, 420s, assorted scows, a laser and keel boat; offering students exposure to a variety of sailboat types and sailing experiences.
