Learn to Sail – Adult Sailing Classes

Learn to Sail lessons are ideal for beginning sailors or as a refresher course. Instruction focuses on basic sailing skills, nomenclature, safety practices, rules of right of way, and rigging/derigging procedures.

All adult sailing classes meet twice a week for four weeks. Every person taking an Adult class will be given a free one month membership.

Class schedules are subject to change according to demand. The Sailing Center reserves the right to cancel up to two class sessions per course due to inclement weather without scheduling makeup classes.
