If you ask us, there is nothing better than gliding across the water with only the wind behind you (or beside you - more on that on your lesson!).  Think you, your loved one, or a buddy would love to sign up for sailing lessons but want them to try it first? Sign up for a try sailing package, a two-hour excursion on the water where they will get some basic instruction, a feel for the boat, and even take the tiller!  Feel free to ask about our Basic Keelboat Certification course to learn more about what you will learn and how to prepare.  There is so much to learn!
