What You'll Get
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 $70, you get a two-hour Intro to Sailing class from Charleston Sailing School (a $150 value), weighing anchor daily from Charleston City Marina.
Charleston Sailing School provides sailing instruction helmed by experienced and certified captains and conducted within newly minted sea vessels. An Intro to Sailing class tours Charleston Harbor from within 25-foot Catalina sailing boats and teaches students the basics of sail rigging, steering, and waterway etiquette, imparting that words such as "luff" and "spinnaker" are more than just comic-book sound effects. Led by a salty crew of ASA-certified instructors, each with at least five years experience sailing the briny deep, Charleston’s classes are limited to four junior mariners apiece to allow for speedy headcounts after suspicious splashes and to ensure that everyone gets personalized instruction and enough time at the mast.
The Charleston Sailing School fleet is an easy-to-handle and hard-to-capsize collection of vessels built entirely within the confines of the new millennium. All classes begins with a brief boat orientation, including federal safety requirements and recommended equipment. An airtight and waterproof safety waiver needs to be signed before setting sail, paving the way for wave-borne adventure.
