Supervised Sailing for both YOUTH and ADULTS:

 

You've learned how to sail, now come show off your new skills under the supervision of a sailing instructor. A sailing school instructor will make sure you have rigged your boat properly, they will remind you of areas you are able to sail and they will answer any questions you have. Once you are out sailing, the instructor will be at the dock and/or cruising around in the safety boat to offer you tips. This is not a lesson, but our instructors will certainly make sure things are going well for you.

You may bring one guest with you on the boat at no additional charge. Two to four people per boat for sailing Flying Scots and one to two people per boat for sailing sunfish. Sailing solo on Flying Scots will be up to the instructors discretion - if you are here for the session on your own and the instructor feels necessary, he/she will match you up with another sailor or group of sailors.

Space is limited so sign up early. If the session is full, it is a good idea to put yourself on a waiting list so we can contact you about availability changes.
