This basic sailing course is designed for beginners with no sailing experience.  Included in your $400 cost is the US Sailing's Learn to Sail textbook, one virtual orientation class online for the four classes (two on Saturdays and two on Thursdays), and access to take our club Boatshare boats out sailing on your own upon successful completion of your Boatshare checkout sail with one of our trainers.

The instruction is a combination of self-paced book and virtual orientation before our four in-person classes.  In-person classes will meet in the rigging lot  for a brief "classroom" portion followed by on the water sailing.  Skills taught include rigging and launching a sailboat, sailing upwind and downwind, starting and stopping, right-of-way and rules of the water, and safe docking.
The on-the-water training solidifies your skills, with one instructor and two or three students per boat.

For an additional $200 you may include a spouse, family member, friend, or significant other and you both can learn to sail together!
