Choose Between Two Options
$150 for a sailing package (a $300 total value)
- A five-hour introductory ground-school class
- A two-hour instructional sailing outing
$75 for a two-hour instructional sailing outing for two (a $150 value)
During the ground-school class, an instructor explains the physics and theory of basic keelboat sailing. During instructional outings students board a boat and sail around Lake Lanier, taking various crew positions along the journey. Every 10 minutes, the students rotate positions to actively learn how sailing works. For the outings, the academy recommends students bring this special gear.
Windsong Sailing Academy
Windsong Sailing Academy blends the educational and the recreational aspects of sailing. It is a formula that has inspired lifelong passions in several former students. One student abandoned his corporate life to sail the Caribbean with his son, and another couple spent their retirement as the co-captains of an Island Packet 38 sailboat, boating past Miami, the Bahamas, and several countries recently acquired by Tom Hanks.
Over the course of Windsong’s 28 years of nautical adventures, Captain Dave Crumbley and his team have still sought to instill both knowledge and passion for the sport they love. With their educational courses, you’ll learn both theory and technique, and you can choose to take a program that can lead to certification with the American Sailing Association.
