Adult Sailing Lessons

2024 Registration Opens January 31st.

The beginner class is a hands-on introduction to sailing, with no experience necessary. An instructor sits in every boat at all times, but you will steer, tack, gybe, and trim the sails. Safety on the water is a large focus in this class. No experience necessary.
