Marina Sailing - Multiple Locations: Sailing Lessons at Marina Sailing. Two Options and Three Locations Available.

Commuting via sailboat has a number of advantages: there are no traffic jams, there are no hitchhikers with hooks for teeth, and if you hit a deer it's definitely the deer's fault. Enjoy the liberty of maritime traffic law with today's Groupon at Marina Sailing. Choose from its locations in Redondo Beach, Long Beach, or Marina del Ray. Choose between the following options:

  • For $62, you get a two-hour introductory sailing trip (a $125 value).
  • For $247, you get two three-hour basic sailing lessons (a $495 value).

Marina Sailing's USCG-certified skippers turn hydrophobic landlubbers of all skill levels and ages into seasoned seafarers with a litany of maritime courses. Hydro-curious adults can get a taste of the open seas aboard one of Marina Sailing's vessels for a two-hour introductory sailing excursion. The sail gives dry-behind-the-ears novices a chance to experience the feel of the waves and the worthiness of their sea legs before making a commitment to lengthy learning. Those already enthralled by the charming wit and firm handshake of the sea may opt for two basic-sailing weekend courses. In the first three-hour lesson, students learn the watery fundamentals, including boat safety, casting off, raising sail, sailing upwind, and more, and the second class covers more advanced techniques, such as single-handed sailing, close-quarters maneuvering, docking under sail, and beaming up William Shatner.

Should you choose to continue your briny education following the basic sailing courses, Marina Sailing will apply the courses to the balance of ASA 101 (Basic Sailing) and ASA 103 (Coastal Cruising), allowing members to get certified for $447.50. All textbooks and a Marina Sailing membership are included, after which the testing fee and regular monthly membership dues will apply. Call in advance to schedule sessions and for specific requirements.
