Adult and Family Programs

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 17 years and older and families.

The thrill and joy of sailing is right at your fingertips at PBCB! Our adult sailing programs grant the Cape community and its visitors the opportunity to experience our world-famous Pleasant Bay via a variety of sailboats.  Our classes are inclusive, affordable and focused on skills-progression, and all are led by our team of experienced, down-to-earth and (salt-of-the-earth) instructors. Whether you are new to sailing or you want to relive the nostalgia of sailing as a child, our adult programs offer you the chance to  learn (or relearn) the basics, sharpen your existing sailing skills, and explore the Cape waters, all while immersing and connecting to our amazing community.

 

We always aim to get you to the next level. Questions about how to assess your level?  Email Waterfront Director Tom Leach at leacht@pbcb.cc.

Level 1 Courses are designed for Beginners and Intermediate sailors looking for a good review.  Your learning begins on shore with the basics.  In order to achieve social distancing, the on-shore training will be thorough and will progress to you skippering the boat on the water with our instructor coaching you from a chase boat.  Please register each adult 17+.   You may bring kids IF you have signed up for the Flying Scot class, if the child is 6 or older, and if you have registered 2 adults who are relatively competent in the boat.

Level 2 Courses have you skippering the boat on the water with your instructor coaching from a chase boat nearby.  This is a good fit for semi-independent sailors.  Feel free to bring your family–you may need some crew!  A few Level 2 lessons will give you the confidence you need to rent our boats on your own and/or progress to racing!
