Q: Can I or my sailor attend Open Sail Nights?
A: In order to be cleared for Open Sail Night, a sailor must prove that they can rig, sail, and de-rig their boat without assistance. Sailors must also fill out a separate waiver to participate in Open Sail Night. If you or your sailor would like to attend Open Sail Night, but you are not sure if they have been cleared to sail, please contact us to double check.
Q: Do you guys offer adult classes?
A: We do! Our adult classes are taught with a combination of online, self-paced learning and weekly in-person sailing with instructors. This allows for more scheduling flexibility and means we can really focus our time spent in-person to hands-on sailing experience. Our adult class schedule for summer 2021 is in progress, and will be announced soon.
