Private lessons are subject to instructor availability. Please contact us if you’re interested. Private lessons are a 3-hour session for up to 2 children, ages 7-17. For newer/younger sailors (ages 7-9), lessons will take place on Optimist Dinghies, single handed boats tailored towards newer/younger sailors. Students will learn the basics of rigging the Optimists, boat handling, sailing fundamentals, seamanship, sportsmanship, and water safety. For more experienced and/or older sailors (ages 9-17), lessons will take place in Optis, Lasers, or 420s, depending on a student’s size, experience, and maturity. Sailors will expand their skills on the water with various challenges and games. We will follow updated CDC and NYS Department of Health guidelines for social-distancing and mask-wearing, both on and off the water.
