Life is a little better out on the bay!
Whether you’re new to boating or it’s just been a while, there’s no time like the present to get back on the water. Our adult programs are taught in small groups in a variety of boats, and offer a welcoming environment to learn the basics, sharpen existing skills, or explore new interests. Adult programs are open to those 18 years and older.
This class is designed both for beginners who are just learning the basics, and intermediates who are ready for more advanced skills such as racing and spinnakers. Evening lessons are a great way to enjoy twilight on the Bay! (Monday-Thursday 5:30-7:30 pm (time changes to 5-7pm in August); Saturday 9:30-noon. Non Member $55/class Member $35/class).Book now!
