Advanced Sailing will provide sailors with an extra opportunity to get out on the water throughout the spring and summer (spring/fall) to develop their skills as racers and train with an experienced sailing coach in order to improve their performance at targeted events.
*** Please check in with a coach to make sure your sailor has met the required skillset to join the advanced program.
Private / Group / Adult Lessons
Adult / Private Groups:
Hop into a dinghy with your friend, spouse or a new friend. We’ll teach you all the basics of sailing so you can get out onto the sound on your own. Dinghy Sailing is a great way to learn how to sail and all dinghy skills are transferable to yacht sailing. 2 adults per sailboat and we guarantee 1 instructor per 4 adults.
Dates to be announced early June.
