Sailing lessons teach you to navigate choppy waters or awkward conversations during unnaturally still waters. Weather any storm with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $74 for five half days of a youth summer sailing camp (a $149 value)
- $129 for five full days of a youth summer sailing camp (a $259 value)<p>
Sailors ages 8–16 are enrolled in summer-camp sessions separated into two age groups that allow them to experience skippering and crewing on a dinghy and centerboard sailboats in light-to-moderate winds. Using the American Sailing Association’s certification system methods, instructors comprehensively educate kids through three levels of instruction based on experience and ability to sport a shoulder-parrot. Swimming, rowing, and games are intermixed throughout the day, and all sessions are limited to groups of 30 sailors. This Groupon is valid for any of the classes listed on the youth-camp page, including dinghy basics, dinghy advanced, and small boat advanced.<p>
