Red sky at night is a sailor’s delight, but red sky at morning means the ship's been steered inside a volcano. Discover further aquaformation with today’s Groupon: for $179, you get a four-week adult sailing course and membership at Battleship Cove in Fall River (a $365 value). Classes meet Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Choose from the following sessions: May 24–June 16, June 21–July 14, July 19–August 11, or August 16–September 8.
Battleship Cove's skilled, certified instructors tutor students on perfecting the art of smooth sailing in the adult instruction sailing courses. The course focuses on the fundamentals of sailing, including boating safety, rigging, and sail handling. Enjoy the sounds of mellifluously flowing water as it slaps across the schooner, unimpeded by the din and fumes of a motorboat. Students also learn how to steer a course in order to map their own path and avoid hitting lake monsters or swimmers posing as lake monsters. Battleship Cove's classes welcome seafarers of all skill levels and will leave most students sailing confidently at the end of the four-week session.
Today's Groupon also includes a Battleship Cove Community Boating membership, awarding members free unlimited boat usage during open sailing hours, discounted private instructions, and free admission to races. Members also enjoy use of the facilities and docks; docking a steadily sinking Hummer limousine, however, is not recommended.
