$40 for Two-Hour Sailing Lesson ($80 Value)

Under the watchful eye of an experienced instructor, sailors spend most of their lesson on the water, learning skills such as rigging, knot tying, and navigating both upwind and downwind in accordance with the Canadian Yachting Association's White Sail curriculum. Lessons range from one-on-one to small-group instruction based on how many people reserve each class time. Two-hour lessons begin at 5 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday; at 10 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday; and at 10 a.m. and 2:20 p.m. on Sunday. The $80 value of this Groupon may be applied to one of Rocky Point's programs, and for an additional $15 students can receive their CAN Sail 1 certification.

Rocky Point Sailing Association

When most of the local boating club's members decided to venture into sailing large cruisers and racing, a small group of sailors remained loyal to their first love—sailing dinghies. This tightly knit crew formed Rocky Point Sailing Association, which today encompasses a fleet of about 40 boats and a staff of more than a dozen Sail Canada instructors.

At their headquarters inside of Rocky Point Park's Old Mill Boathouse, the sailors instruct kids as young as 4 years up through adults in all levels of sailing. Rocky Point's team also extends membership privileges, such as the use of a restored Columbia 27 cruiser, the Orane. To indulge competitive spirits, RPSA's crew also maintains a race team.

It was a lot of fun and one of my best experiences in life. Unfortunately I missed the program started in June and not able to involve this summer as well. I'll definitely try to make it next year.

Great introduction to sailing, our instructor was patient and friendly. I learned a lot and am considering signing up for more classes, as they run some good programs with fair prices.
