Our classes are geared for the new sailor or for the sailor wanting to retool their skills. Classes will be held at the Thames Yacht Club located at 396 Pequot Ave in New London, CT. We will be using the club’s 420 sailboats which are designed for a skipper and crew of one. Each student will take a turn as skipper and crew. Students will learn the Points of Sail and use that knowledge to sail on a reach, as well as tack upwind, gybe downwind, and stop the boat on a dime.
But most of all students will learn the joy and fun of being on the water in a sailboat.
We have several class options to accommodate the working adult schedule. There will be two sessions consisting of ten hours of instruction held on Monday and Tuesday nights. Classes will be from 5:30 to 7:30. This means a three week commitment on Monday and Tuesday nights, the 3rd Tuesday is an optional free supervised sailing night. We will also be offering two adult weekend sailing sessions with instruction from 9:30 to 3:00 on Saturday and Sunday.
