The Deal

  • $89 for 3-hour introductory sailing lesson ($180 value)

ASA-certified instructors teach the fundamentals of sailing during a hands-on three-hour cruise. From trimming the jib and hoisting the main to actually taking the helm, up to five students per trip learn the basic aspects of sailing before returning to shore.

Barnegat Bay Sailing

Captain Michael Bandera and first mate Audrey Rosenberg have a lot in common, but few of those threads is as strong as their common love of sailing. Sailing together since 1991, the pair explored the coast of New Jersey for seven years before deciding to open Barnegat Bay Sailing Charters. Today, they continue to lead charters, and also teach American Sailing Association–certification courses and specialized sailing lessons for people of all experience levels. They even earned a 2010 ASA award for Outstanding School.

Aboard the Margarita, a sloop-rigged Catalina 30 sailboat, groups gaze at the New Jersey shore at sunset or midday during one of many scheduled charters. When not taking in views on deck, guests can lounge in the plush cabin with a bathroom and refrigerator full of cold bottles of water, in case a situation demands bribing Jersey's pirate bands of retired rock stars. The team also rents out sailing boats for seaborne sojourns.

In a Nutshell

Students take the helm, hoist the main, and trim the jib with help from ASA sailing instructors during three-hour intro cruises
