What You'll Get

Sailing around the world is much easier when you learn which knots are edible and why dolphins aren't marriage material. Learn the basics with today's Groupon: for $45, you get one introduction-to-sailing course at Sail Solomons in Solomons, MD (a $95 value). The value of this Groupon may be applied toward an upgrade.

Along with their team of U.S. Coast Guard- and American Sailing Association-licensed instructors, Sail Solomons co-owners Andy and Lisa Batchelor teach student sea dogs of all abilities the ins and outs of sailing. Climb aboard a responsive 22-foot Catalina keelboat for a two-hour introductory course on the scenic Chesapeake Bay. Rudder wranglers start by learning water-vessel lingo, allowing them to finally communicate with their younger brothers who were born pirates. After a lesson on ark anatomy, students can tackle techniques such as raising the sails, steering the boat, and warning off manatees by circular breathing into a saxophone. With a cap of four sailors per session, classes provide plenty of individual attention. Sail Solomon holds intro sessions most Friday, Saturday, and Sunday afternoons through July from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., and 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Students can also arrange weekday water rendezvous when calling ahead for a reservation.

Groupon customers are invited to Sail Solomons' open house on Saturday, April 30 from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
