Our lessons are on a private lesson basis, with up to two new sailors at a time. This means that you and another can learn together and so enjoy the experience together.
Cost – $450 (Please ask about our family or friend discounts. We can take up to 2 beginners (and the Instructor) at one time. )
12hrs of instruction over 4 – 6 sessions of approx. 2 hrs.
The lessons give you the fundamentals of sailing, how to get from point A to point B, docking etc. Once mastered, these skills can be applied to any size boat. The first session is in the classroom, the rest are all hands on, on the water!
We use a 5.2m Harpoon or a 19ft Flying Scot – these are centerboard boats so somewhat smaller than what you might be hoping to do some blue water sailing with – but sailing is sailing 🙂
You will learn both “crewing” and “skippering”. The basic “Learn to Sail” program consists of 12hrs of lessons and study material. Lessons are arranged at times convenient to the Instructor and the student.
Once the ‘Learn to Sail’ program is completed, LESC offers all the unique opportunity to further practice and enjoy sailing by inviting them to ‘come aboard’ and sail with experienced sailors during the bi-weekly club races (at no extra cost). This ‘crewing’ program will give the sailing student lots of ‘hands on’ sailing experience. All you have to do is sign on onto the ‘CREWING LIST” which is posted on one of our club’s memo boards in the club house. Several of our club members are always looking for an extra crew member and will be happy to take you on board during club racing weekends. This program is free for all “Learn to Sail” participants and offers a unique opportunity for sailing students to enjoy and to practice sailing.
Covid Safety – We stay outside and we keep our face-coverings on while ashore, on a boat with another sailor, or if the coach is assisting. We follow current CDC and Lake County guidelines.
