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. Relax and set sail on the open, mammal-free waters with today's Groupon: for $79, you get a two-hour sailing lesson for two from Sail Buffalo Sailing School (a $250 value), held Monday–Friday until September 1, with sessions from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., noon to 2:00 p.m., and 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Each session caters to a maximum of four students per instructor, but students may request to be only two per boat. Groupon holders will also receive a $50 voucher for future lessons, good for ASA certification courses and future wave-riding fun.

Sail Buffalo Sailing School's nationally accredited instructors captain a fleet of boats, teaching novices the art of wind wrangling while fostering community for seasoned aqua explorers. During the two-hour picnic sail and lesson, a crew of up to four launch onto Lake Erie for hands-on wind lassoing. Instructors lecture on general ship-savvy and negotiating with 18th-century pirates, before coaching each student through a turn at the helm. As first-timers confront wind gusts, instructors keep the atmosphere relaxed and positive, helping students recover and learn from mistakes. Meanwhile, crewmates soak in secondhand sail know-how and build camaraderie while crunching through BYO picnic fare and determining the best way to build a secret underwater fort.
