Our Fall Sailing Program Begins on September 25th


Our goal is to provide a safe environment for your kids to have fun and learn to sail. As of this writing in late-March we are hoping to be back to generally normal conditions by summer. However, due to the ever-changing nature of the pandemic, we will be fine-tuning procedures as necessary right up to the start of the program to provide the best response to the latest local, state and national guidelines. We will provide you with an update to any procedures as they evolve.
