Adult Classes

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

 

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.

 

Adult Sailing 101: Sailing Basics

For those ages 18 and up with little to no experience sailing in small boats, this class will take you through the basics of sailing a 14′ RS Quest, Hobie Wave Catamaran, or both. With 2 – 3 students per boat, sailors should develop the skills required to continue sailing for years to come!

The course will be conducted partially online and partially in person on the water. Tuition is $240 per person but participants must register with a partner in order to operate the boats while maintaining social distancing. Should you wish to register as a group of three, you may sign up as a pair and then contact the office to add an additional student to your registration.

If you are a parent looking to take a class with your child who is age 15 to 17, you may contact us to register your child to join you for this Adult Sailing offering.
