Embark on a seafaring adventure without falling off the edge of our flat planet with today’s side deal. For $75, you get a two-hour group sailing lesson (a $150 value) at the Offshore Sailing School. Lessons are available at NYC’s Chelsea Piers and Jersey City’s Liberty Landing Marina. Up to two Groupons may be purchased per person, so buy one for a friend or someone you'd like to turn into a friend.
Offshore Sailing exposes participants to Steve and Doris Colgate’s years of water-navigating, knot-tying experience. The couple actively participates in several national boards and committees and competes in numerous races. This year marks the school’s 46th year in business. Budding sailors will participate in a two-hour lesson with two to four other students, ensuring individual attention from knowledgeable instructors on a sleek, award-winning Colgate 26 sailboat. The lesson will provide novice seafarers with the basic skills to sail a boat up to 30 feet long with confidence, just like it has for more than 115,000 other graduates.
Lessons are not available on Memorial Day, Independence Day, or Labor Day.
