  • For $247, you get two three-hour basic sailing lessons (a $495 value).

Marina Sailing preserves the art of sailboat operation through classes helmed by ASA-certified instructors. A one-hour introductory sail elucidates the basic elements of sailing, including sail operation, boating maneuvers, and docking. Instructors impart a lexicon of new words, many of which have to do with sailing. Throughout the session, students can get involved within their comfort level or opt to sit back and soak up their newfound know-how.

Basic sailing lessons set students afloat for two three-hour sessions. The first session revolves around water orientation and fundamental principles of sailing. Students learn the parts of the boat, how to turn away from and into the wind, and how to tie a variety of knots. The second session reviews lessons learned in the previous one in addition to sailing maneuvers such as single-handed tacking and jibbing, which keeps one hand free for yo-yoing.
