|Our instructors are trained and certified by US Sailing, the national governing body of sailing in the United States. Not only do they follow a curriculum developed by US Sailing, they make the classes a fun experience. With instruction both on and off the water, our students learn the basics of sailing and safety as well as teamwork, communication and sportsmanship. With our hands-on approach, all students learn to rig, launch and care for their boats.
