Our Programs

Junior Sailing

Our learn-to-sail program gives many students their first opportunity at command of a boat.  Students earn self confidence and responsibility as they gain boat handling skills.  Lessons include  sailing terminology, knot-tying skills, safe sailing lessons, racing skills and much more.

Junior Racing

Our racing program starts by honing dinghy skills and can help transition the student as far as they want to go.  Sessions focus on specific racing skills and techniques with classroom instruction to review strategy, tactics and rules. Short practice races allow for ample coaching opportunities.

Adult Sailing

Our adult program has successfully provided newer sailors the opportunity to comfortably handle their own boat.  We tailor these sessions to the individual.  Whether getting on a dinghy for the first time or refreshing good sailing habits, our instructors are there to provide the experience desired.
