First Sail

First Sail is a nationwide initiative developed by US Sailing. This unique opportunity offers beginners an introduction to sailing in a casual setting and is designed to provide a memorable experience that will motivate newcomers to continue sailing. Participants will get out on the water with an instructor in a sailboat provided by the First Sail Location. The First Sail Experience features basic hands-on learning on board a sailboat that will cover topics such as: how a sail works; parts of a sailboat; points of sail; and important safety guidelines.

The cost is $45 per person, and registration limited to up to 6 per session (we will add more slots as more volunteers are available). These sessions are at 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM on the following dates:

  • May 7th
  • June 4th
  • July 9th
  • August 6th
  • September 10th
  • October 1st
