Since 2004, the first-aid- and CPR-trained crew at Port Sailing School has ferried passengers over Manhasset Bay for sailing lessons, charters, camps, and certification courses aboard the school's fleet. The outfit's nine noble vessels include such seafaring specimens as the J 24 keelboat, the two-cabin Beneteau 36, and the Sonar 23, designated as the fleet’s primary lesson boat for its roomy cockpit and no-mutinies record. Aboard the Sonar 23, students learn sailing skills and marine laws through instructional courses that range from private introductory sailing lessons to state safety certifications. Based on the course topic, lessons may focus on such boating aspects as docking, mooring pickup, anchoring, or advanced racing techniques, each dictated by the desires of the student and the daily attitude of the sea.:m]]

On any given day, the staff might use this wellness suite for a battle rope workout or boot camp. The team also includes an onsite nutritionist who presents personalized diet programs, complete with dietary analysis and meal-planning assistance.
There may be a lot of playtime at The Language Workshop for Children, but don't think the students aren't learning; during classes, instructors use songs, games, toys, and more to teach children the basics of tongues such as French, Spanish, and Chinese.
The Language Workshop is the brainchild of François Thibaut, who created the school in 1973 after years of observing how children learned languages. In the same vein, instructors understand that even infants can pick up a second language, and they teach anyone from 6 months to 9 years old in group classes, with private lessons available for older students in certain locations.
