Lessons are offered on Monday and Tuesday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., and on Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Good for all skill levels, this lesson can introduce beginners to the basics of sailing, or help more experienced sailors hone their skills.

Customer Reviews

Great fun and experience!
Annette · September 7, 2014
Nitzan was prompt, professional and a pleasure to sail with. She eagerly shared her knowledge and led us to have a great, hands-on sailing experience. We are novices so she took that into account and still managed to give us an exciting, enjoyable sailing experience in the NYC Lower Manhattan bay area. Highly recommend it!
