The Deal

$79 for a three-hour sailing lesson for one and a $10 food voucher ($310 value)

During a semiprivate sailing lesson in Port Washington, sailors improve their sailing techniques on sparkling Manhasset Bay. Offered aboard company boats, lessons embark seven days a week starting at 9:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., with a max of four students per lesson. The $10 food voucher is redeemable at Riverfish on the Bay, located within walking distance of the dock.

Port Sailing School

Since 2004, the first-aid- and CPR-trained crew at Port Sailing School has ferried passengers over Manhasset Bay for sailing lessons, charters, camps, and certification courses aboard the school's fleet. The outfit's nine noble vessels include such seafaring specimens as the J 24 keelboat, the two-cabin Beneteau 36, and the Sonar 23, designated as the fleet’s primary lesson boat for its roomy cockpit and no-mutinies record. Aboard the Sonar 23, students learn sailing skills and marine laws through instructional courses that range from private introductory sailing lessons to state safety certifications. Based on the course topic, lessons may focus on such boating aspects as docking, mooring pickup, anchoring, or advanced racing techniques, each dictated by the desires of the student and the daily attitude of the sea.
