Reap boating benefits with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a one-hour sailing outing for up to four people from South Bay Sailing in Redondo Beach (a $135 value).

The skilled boatswains of South Bay Sailing lead seafaring excursions upon their trusty fleet of sailboats, earning their outfit the distinction of being named Best Sailing Class in 2011 by Easy Reader News. Crews of up to four embark for an hour upon the waves in a 26-foot J/80 sailboat, which, like a Boy Scout troop, can reach speeds of up to 15 knots per hour. During the trip, a certified sailing instructor will teach passengers of all experience levels the basics of sailing, such as trimming the jib, hoisting the mainsail for the first sail of the day, and bribing dolphin-riding sea cops. Those who would prefer to sightsee can relax as the instructor deftly guides the ship across the scenic South Bay coastline. Customers may bring snacks and drinks along for the sail, and are also free to string together up to three Groupons in one visit for a three-hour sojourn in Poseidon’s playground.

so much fun on the waters! It was such a pleasant sailing experience with the instructor and had a blast learning how to sail and soaking in the soothing salty breeze from the water. I will definitely go with my boyfriend again and bring some champagne next time!
