Memorial Day Weekend Info- hours & more!
May 24, 2017

With a three day weekend and highs reaching 80, it is looking like a great time to get on the water!

Sail Sand Point will be open weekend hours on Memorial Day, so 11:00-sunset.

There may be wait times for skills tests during peak times Saturday-Monday. Consider coming in a day early to do a skills test on Friday in order to minimize weekend wait times. Refresher lessons will NOT be offered this weekend, but will start next weekend. Check out the schedule for details.

RS Quests will not be available until 1:30 PM on Saturday/Sunday. Only 6 FJs will be available on Saturday/Sunday from 3:00-5:30; at other times 9 will be available. Three Hobie 16s will be available.

If you are coming to SSP for the first time this year, you will need to fill out a Participant Agreement. This can be done on site, or online before you arrive.

We look forward to the weekend! For questions, check out the Rentals page or email us at info@sailsandpoint.org. Emails and phones may not be monitored Saturday-Monday.

 

New Class- Hobie Wave Experience!
May 15, 2017

A class for adults (ages 14+) who would like to try out sailing without committing to a full class. Hobie Wave Experience will run each Wednesday and Sunday, 6-8 PM starting after Memorial Day.  Register here!

 

This class is a quick introduction to sailing the Hobie Wave, also known as the “sailboat with training wheels.” In two hours, it will give people a taste of small boat sailing on a simple and safe platform. Our goal with this class is to provide adventurous folks an inexpensive opportunity to sail and potentially pass the skills proficiency test after just a class or two. once you pass the skills test you can continue to sail and grow on your own outside of class. We will cover basic sailing theory, tacking and gybing, rigging, and capsizing on the 14′ Hobie Wave catamaran. If there is no wind we will take to the water on paddleboards and/or kayaks.
