EBSF

Adult Sailing Lessons!

Life is better on the water

East Bay Sailing Foundation's Adult Lessons have been teaching new adult sailors for many years. Our BYC volunteer instructors who are lead by Peter Maloney, do a fabulous job on teaching the basics of learn-to-sail, as well as what you would need to know if you were to buy your own boat. We focus on safety, communication and team building. 

We hope to see you on the water and enjoy all of what life has to offer.

ADULT BEGINNER


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.

 

Each weekly class session includes 2 ½ hours of sailing and a half-hour of classroom work. Instructors are seasoned, veteran volunteer sailors. We sail on Cape Cod Mercuries, very safe 15' fiberglass keel boats with a main and jib.
