Introduction to Dinghy Sailing for Adults

Two Split Rock Sailing Dinghies on Lake Champlain

September 17, 2023 , 9:00 am 4:00 pm

$125 Pay-what-you-can

**Due to the Weather Forecast, this class has been moved to the rain date of Sunday, September 17**

Do you want to learn how to sail but never had the time or opportunity? Now is your chance! Adults ages 17 and up can join us for a one-day introductory sailing class. You’ll specifically learn about small-boat dinghy sailing in the Museum’s custom fleet of Split Rock Sailing Dinghies. Basics include how to sail a small vessel, how to right a capsized boat, how to get out on the water, how to sit in the boat, and more.

This is a class for beginners or anyone looking for a refresher class on how to sail. If you have sailing experience and want to take one of our dinghies out on the lake to enjoy, check out our Weekend Sailing dates.

The class will be held at the Museum in North Harbor. In case of inclement weather, we will hold a rain date on Sunday, September 17. The class will have a break in the middle of the day for lunch. Please bring a packed lunch and plenty of water to stay hydrated throughout the day.
