Introduction to Sailing Class

July 11 , 4:30 pm – 7:30 pm

$125 Pay-What-You-Can

Do you want to learn how to sail but never had the time or opportunity? Now is your chance! Join us on July 11, 18, and 25 at 4:30–7:30 pm for our Introduction to Sailing Class.

This class is designed for adults ages 18 and up to get an introduction to small boat sailing. Over the course of three class sessions, you’ll learn the essentials including how to sail a small vessel, how to right a capsized boat, how to get out on the water, how to sit, and more. Class is taught with the Museum’s fleet of custom Split Rock Sailing Dinghies, built right here in our boat shop, and every participant will have lots of time for professional instruction, practice, and fun.

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, keep an eye out for open sailing hours that will be announced soon.

The class will be held at the Museum in North Harbor. Attendance at all class sessions is strongly recommended. In case of inclement weather, we will contact participants immediately. Participants should wear clothes that can get wet and bring their own water and snacks.
