Choose Between Two Options
- $20 for a 50-minute introduction to sailing course (a $40 value)
- $49 for two 90-minute Sailing Intensive classes (a $99 value)
The introductory course lets amateur sailors learn basic skills as they handle lines and take the helm during a hands-on lesson. Sailing Intensive is broken into two 90-minute lessons that can be scheduled on the same day or separately. The first class covers safety and upwind sailing, and the second details downwind sailing, cruise preparation, and handling in tight quarters.
Scovare Expeditions Inc.
With more than 25 years of maritime experience, Shane St. Clair captains Scovare Expeditions' fleet of sailboats, unveiling the windblown channels of the Willamette River to budding sailors and sightseeing passengers. During sailing tours, passengers can bob across the river while taking in the views of the volcanic caldera of Elk Rock Island or feast on three-course meals as the sails fill up with wind like a balloon ruining its dinner. A new 40' ocean going yacht is available for private and corporate events and a fast pontoon boat keeps guest boating in style. Those interested in learning the ropes can sign up for sailing lessons, where savvy instructors teach novices how to command the helm, guide the lines, and barter with miserly seagulls.
