Adult & Family Sailing Lessons

April 14 @ 10:00 am - 4:30 pm

- $200

CANCELLED DUE TO COVID-19 RESTRICTIONS.  HOPE TO SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!

ADULTS AND YOUTH 10+

Sailing is an activity that can be enjoyed for a lifetime. Come feel the wind on your face, breath the fresh air and learn how those little boats get from place to place using only the wind. It’s easy and fun. We know it’s one of those things you always wanted to do – so do it now!! The on the water instruction will be in Pelican or Lido 14 Sailboats.

Participants must be comfortable around the water and be confident that if a boat should capsize, they can stay afloat for 5 minutes or more. They should have sufficient mobility to move about in the boat and react quickly in some situations.

New Family Lessons! New for this year, we are offering a FAMILY SAILING option. A family unit can consist of one or two adults and at least one child aged 10+, up to a maximum of 3 students per unit. The family will learn and sail together, mostly in the same boat. This is a great way for parents and their children or grandparents and their grandchildren to share a fun experience and learn a life-long skill.

Instructors: These sessions of the US Sailing Course for Beginning Sailing are offered by the South Whidbey Yacht Club.
