Sailing basics

Adult Sailing Open House – Sunday, June 11th at 10:30am

Open House (3hrs / 1 day / FREE)

Students will be able to take a sail with one of our instructors aboard our Flying Scots or Marshall 15 Catboats and get a feeling for sailing on Duxbury Bay.  After sailing join us for some burgers, hot dogs, refreshments and sailing chat.  There is no charge for this 3 hour event.
We hope you enjoy our intro to sailing as much as we do and sign up for further lessons, or maybe even a social sail!
