Lessons are offered on the four boats below. Let your instructor know which ones interest you.
The Hobie Wave is the perfect boat for a first sail – you can feel the wind and hear the water and you just might get wet!
The Hobie Getaway is all about fun. It is an extremely spacious and stable catamaran for families and friends to enjoy. With a boomless mainsail and furling jib - the Getaway is absolutely simple to use, yet delivers some surprisingly smooth speed.
The American 18 is a sloop-rigged day sailor, and one of our main training boats for new sailors or sailors wishing to brush up on their skills.
The RS Venture is a large high performance dinghy which offers more advanced training opportunities. Come learn how to fine tune sails and fly a spinnaker.
Two hour lesson sessions

For Women Learning to Sail
Learn with our Luffing Lassies
Every year in the fall, the Luffing Lassies host a two week-long Introduction to Sailing (ITS) Program. The goal is to teach women how to skipper a Sunfish so they can join the Lassies for Thursday races throughout the school year. The ITS program is geared to first time sailors or those who wish to brush up on their Sunfish skills. It is the first step to becoming a Luffing Lassie and joining a great group of women who love to sail.
Want to have even more fun?
Join our Boatshare program after your lessons, and keep sailing! Available to our members, it's a great way to get more time on the water without the costs of boat ownership.
