First Sail

Sailing is the perfect activity for anyone who enjoys water sports and outdoor recreation. Sailing can be exciting or relaxing. You can compete in racing or take a leisurely sail with family and friends. Regardless of age, ability or limitation, sailing has something for everyone.

Our First Sail Introductory Class offers an overview of sailing and introduces you to options available on how to learn to sail. This is an adult class, so grab your friends and try something new!   Teens may attend when parent/guardian is also participating.

The class is just over 2 hours in length, and weather permitting, includes a combination of on the water and "chalk talk" instruction. The cost is $25 per person and you are encouraged to dress for the water and wear closed-toe shoes. It's also a good idea to bring a beach towel, hat, sunglasses, plenty of sunscreen, and a water bottle.
