The Deal

  • $170 for a two-day basic sailing and seamanship group course ($245 value)

The two-day course teaches students the basics of sailing and seamanship, including everything from sailing theory and knots to nautical terminology and finding and reading the wind direction. A total of 12 hours of onboard instruction provides students with the skills they need to skipper and crew a 22- to 27-foot tiller sailboat on lakes and other protected bodies of water. All instruction takes place on 27- to 30-foot keelboats and lasts from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monterey Bay. During this time, students will likely encounter wildlife such as dolphins, otters, and possibly whales.
