Sailing on international waters allows sailors liberties that can't be taken on land, such as marrying a video game, naming a dog a swearword, or rebroadcasting NFL games without the written consent of the league. Go above the law with today's Groupon to Marina Sailing in Newport Beach. Choose between the following options:
- For $62, you get a two-hour introductory sailing trip for up to two people (up to a $250 value).
- For $247, you get two three-hour basic sailing lessons for up to two people (up to a $990 value).
Marina Sailing's USCG-licensed skippers and ASA-certified instructors guide relaxing sail excursions and impart aspiring sailors with boating basics. During the introductory sail, captains take crews of five or six on a two-hour journey to explore the harbor, the ocean, and possibly the edge of the world. Passengers can sit back and soak up the ocean breeze while gulls glide overhead or catch sight of the occasional dolphin that may splash in the vessel's wake. For a more hands-on experience, seafarers can sign up for two three-hour sailing lessons, held on weekends. Seasoned instructors train up to four students per session in fundamentals such as single-handed sailing, tacking, and docking. Sailors are advised to bring sunscreen, light-soled shoes, and a reliable pair of eye patches.
