$99 for a 2.5-Hour Basic Introduction to Sailing Course ($200 Value)

Students take hold of one wheel while an experienced U.S. Coast Guard captain commands the other, ensuring a safe journey during a hands-on lesson. Along the way, students learn about knots, nautical terminology, tacking, and right of way rules.

This course is designed for beginners who want to sail, those who wish to learn to sail without help, and experienced sailors interested in a refresher as well. Click here to see Chicago Yacht Share's (CYS's) frequently asked questions page.

Chicago Yacht Share

Students are in good hands with Chicago Yacht Share's Captain Norm Zable, who brings 45 years of sailing experience to his classes. Through CYS's progressive program, students can be out on the water this summer by earning their American Sailing Association credentials. They then move on to bareboat chartering opportunities aboard performance luxury cruisers. Bareboat charters allow sailors to enjoy a multitude of perks, such as never having to worry about upkeep, storage, or inconvenient mutinies. If students aren't quite ready to skipper, captained charters are also available.

Customer Reviews

Captain Norm was fantastic! For an introductory class I really feel like I got a lot of hands-on time. I will be returning for some of his more advanced classes.

I had never heard of the Chicago Yacht Share but I am so glad it was on Groupon & that I had this amazing experience. The captain, Norm, was so patient with me & very flexible with dates & I will definitely go back again. I 100% recommend the Chicago Yacht Share to any person who wants to go on a sailboat.
