Private Lessons


Please note that unfortunately, due to the ongoing impact of COVID 19 on our staffing and resources, Private Lessons are being suspended until further notice. SSP will resume offering private lessons once we have determined that is is safe, ethical, and logistically feasible to do so. 


Accelerate your sailing or learn to sail for the first time with private lessons taught by Sail Sand Point’s US Sailing certified Level 1 Instructors!

We offer personalized instruction in a more intimate environment than a class and at the convenience of your own schedule. Private lessons are great for people interested in learning how to sail, wanting to improve their skills or learn how to sail a new boat, in need of a refresher, or seeking some advanced instruction such as racing or performance tips. Private lessons are available for beginning, intermediate, or advanced students; your instructor will focus on what you want to practice and learn.

To request a private lesson, please fill out and submit the Private Lesson Request form. Private lesson requests will be responded to individually by our instructors. Please allow 48 hours to be contacted by an instructor. We recommend requesting a lesson 1-2 weeks before the desired lesson date.

Private lesson rate is $80/hour, minimum 1.5 hours, for 1-2 sailors. Some boats can accommodate additional sailors at $20/hour/sailor. Lessons include use of one boat. Examples of rates can be seen in the table below.
