Youth Sailing

Kids love to sail. We offer lessons for beginners, and intermediates, starting at age 10 and up through high school. It's never too soon to start and never too late to improve skills.

Kids learn in our Pico sailboats, and may qualify to sail the Catalina 14.2, Lazer, or the open Bic sailboat, once they've completed the class.. Experienced sailors over 16 may qualify to train as instructors.

Private Lessons

For those who want to learn at a faster or slower pace from the group lessons or who need more personal attention, we also offer private lessons. These can be taught in an assortment of different types of boats from keelboats to dinghies and even catamarans. It all depends upon your preference. Please click here for information about private lessons.
