Learn to Sail:sailing#1

For the 2017 season, we are offering beginner, intermediate, and sailing lessons to the general public. Beginners are taught the basics of sailing from rigging and launching to steering and boat-handling to finally sailing solo. A fleet of 12 ft. Tech dinghies is used for novice sailors. Intermediate sailors use 14 ft. Flying Junior sloops and are taught more advanced boat handling techniques and use of the spinnaker. Sailing lessons for children (ages 10 – 12) and youths (ages 13 – 16) are also available.
