This was a great experience! Even if you've never been on a sailboat you will learn a lot. The instructor was outstanding. It was a wonderful day.

What You'll Get

Sailing on international waters allows sailors liberties that can't be taken on land, such as marrying a video game, naming a dog a swearword, or rebroadcasting NFL games without the written consent of the league. Go above the law with today's Groupon: for $89, you get a three-hour introductory sailing lesson at Barnegat Bay Sailing School in Bayville, New Jersey (a $180 value).

Named an Outstanding Sailing School of 2010 by the American Sailing Association, Barnegat Bay Sailing School boasts a team of brave boatswains that teach how to command wind-powered vessels in various introductory courses. The three-hour Introduction to Sailing course teaches new wards the basics of being a helmsman, including how to hoist the main, trim the jib, and unscrew the jam jars. Each training trip embarks from the Cedar Creek Marina, where fledgling boaters will use the calm waters of Barnegat Bay as their tidal nursery. Meanwhile, a 40-page booklet instructs in boating practices, teaching novice mariners such important terms as mizzen-mast, amidships, and boat.

About 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.
