Refund Policy for Adult Learn To Sail Courses:

Our Adult Learn To Sail courses are limited to 4 sailors per course, so we are not in a position to offer a refund unless you cancel 15 days in advance. If you need to cancel with two weeks leading up to the course, we will offer a credit for future classes, programs, or membership.  If the USSCMC cancels the course for any reason, we will offer a 100% refund.

Private Sailing Lessons:

We offer private lessons and will schedule instruction on dates and times suitable for you.  Lessons may be scheduled by appointment during regular hours of operations: Wednesday through Sunday, 10 am to 6 pm. Individual goals will determine the number of lessons. Typically, lessons are scheduled in 2 and 3-hour blocks of time. 

As you prepare for your lesson, please be sure to bring the following with you to your lesson at the Sailing Center:

Bathing suit and beach towel

Closed-toe, non-slip boat, water shoes with white soles (dark soles leave marks on the boats.) No flip-flops or spongy crocs as secure footing on the boat is essential.

A change of clothing should you want to go home in dry clothes in the event of rain or a possible capsize drill.
