Adult 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.

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
