Adult Classes

Our adult sailing classes allow people of any age, experience, or ability to learn new skills and grow as a sailor. Whether it’s your first time on the water or you’ve been sailing your whole life, we have a class for you! Our US Sailing Level 1 certified instructors use both on-the-water and on-shore activities to teach essential boating safety along with all the skills needed to rig and sail a variety of boats. If you’re wondering what class would best suit you, check out our “Adult Sailing Progression Chart” or contact our office.

In light of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, SSP will only be offering Adult Sailing 101: Sailing Basics, and our popular Hobie Wave Experience during the 2021 season.
