CLASS BEGINS MAY 23!
It's official! Our 2023 season will kick off May 23 with our introductory sailing course: BASIC SAILING 101!
This introductory course is for beginning and novice sailors! No experience necessary! As the name implies, you will learn the basics of sailing. But don't let the name fool you. The "basics" is a lot to cover, and this course is necessarily jam packed with information! Topics will include sailing concepts, terminology, safety, rules of the road, knots, and more.
This course will be spread across six Tuesday evening classes and include 18 hours of on the water instruction.
CORPORATE SAILING & VOLUME DISCOUNTS
We have a discount program for companies and persons that purchase sailing charters in large volumes.
The program is simple. Discounts are based on the volume of sailing purchased and departure times selected. That’s it. Basically, the more you buy, the more you save!
Whether you are interested in sailing charters for gifts, employee engagement, entertaining clients, thank yous, or team building, we will work with you to customize a sailing program that suits your specific requirements.

FUNDRAISING & DONATIONS
We love helping our community and wish we could honor every donation request we receive with a donation. Unfortunately, that is just not feasible as we are often overwhelmed with requests for donations. So, we took inspiration from other local businesses and developed a fundraising program that will help us help you!
It basically works like this:
That's it. The more people you get to book charters, the more we can donate to your charitable organization. Of course, there are rules and conditions that must apply. Please click the button below to visit our Fundraising & Donations page to get all of the details.
