Sailing on international waters allows sailors liberties that can't be taken on land, such as marrying video games, naming dogs swearwords, or rebroadcasting NFL games without the written consent of the league. Go above the law with today's Groupon to Sail Sand Point for sailing courses and open boating on the western shore of Lake Washington. Choose between the following options:
- For $35, you get a five-use open-boating punch card (a $75 value).
- For $55, you get a two-hour adult intro-to-sailing class (a $125 value).
As a nonprofit organization rather than a sailing club or boat-rental shop, Sail Sand Point floats an enriching nautical experience over come-and-go boating. The five-use open boating punch card grants access to SSP's sailboats, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards for a quintet of 90-minute excursions during open boating hours through October 27. Although only the vessel's captain has to fulfill all five of SSP's open-boating requirements and pen a Whitman-worthy schooner sonnet, any passengers must complete a medical/liability waiver. The craft-curious can get a taste of sailing in the adult two-hour intro course before deciding to commit to a wardrobe of lifejackets and whale pants. After learning some sailing 101 from a US Sailing–certified instructor, students board a boat and practice newly-learned techniques on the waves of Lake Washington.
