The WaterFront Center - Oyster Bay: Sailing Lessons for Two at The WaterFront Center in Oyster Bay. Three Options Available.

Learning to sail bestows people with stylish windblown hair and the ability to talk to clams before putting them in chowder. Reap boating benefits with today’s Groupon to The WaterFront Center in Oyster Bay. Choose from the following options:

The US Sailing–accredited WaterFront Center sets a course for sailing excellence with an experienced staff and a host of hands-on lessons aboard a 23-foot Sonar. Grab a seaworthy partner or reformed doppelgänger and head for the docks at Oyster Bay to embark on a relaxing adventure with the Discover Sailing course. Instructors guide first-timers through basic boat handling, including trimming the sails and setting the auto-destruct if boarded by Klingons. Future skippers looking to take their skills further can double up and enroll in the full-day Sailing 101 class, where they can learn how to prepare the boat for sailing, tie the rigging into knots so it can’t escape, and decipher the wind’s passive-aggressive notes about lowering the sails when it’s not around.

The WaterFront Center extends the sailing ladder to the next level with basic keelboat certification in four- or five-day intensive courses. Classroom learnabouts move from theory to practice with on-water training in safety, navigation, wind awareness, and sail trim. Terminology quizzes, an on-water practical test, and a written exam grant students US Sailing certification.

The WaterFront Center

The future of Oyster Bay is in good hands with The WaterFront Center, a nonprofit U.S. Sailing–accredited facility that teaches both youths and adults to conserve their local environment. In addition to demonstrating the importance of environmental responsibility, the center also instills sailing skills in people of all ages, from their Lil’ Luffers class for third and fourth graders to US Sailing certification for those ready to take the boat out on their own. For corporate groups, they teach a different kind of lesson out on the water with outings designed to teach team development or effective communication. The WaterFront Center also rents sailboats and kayaks to veteran boaters or trustworthy gusts of wind.
