Not sure if sailing is for you? Need the basics or a refresher course? This course is taught over one day and covers basic terminology, rigging, wind direction, turning (tacking and jibing), sailing upwind by the tell tails, sailing downwind without jibing and docking.

More than 95% of the class is on the water.   If your skills need a more work, you can add another session to make up a complete Intro to Sailing Course for an additional $175. Some students will be ready to move on to Basic Keelboat after five hours of instruction, typically those with some prior sailing experience or those who are very fast learners. There is no textbook in Try Sailing or Intro to Sailing, just lots of practice with a maximum of three students per instructor.

Weekend courses are taught on a Saturday or Sunday from 8:00 to 1:00. This class is recommended for ages 18 and over.
