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 to Marina Sailing in Newport Beach. Choose between the following options:

Marina Sailing’s USCG-licensed skippers make seasoned seafarers of students regardless of age or skill level 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 more 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, and sailing upwind; 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 towards credits needed for ASA 101 (Basic Sailing) and ASA 103 (Coastal Cruising) certification

I had a great time and will probably sign up for their certification course. Ralph the instructor was friendly, patient and made the class very fun. They even upgraded me to a longer 3 hour class for free! - Dustin
