If you’ve ever dreamed about taking your little one for a sail around Duxbury Bay, then this 2 hour class is for you. Join one of our instructors aboard a 23ft O’day sailboat for a relaxed cruise with your first mate. Class price is per person.
Students will be introduced to sailing terms, wind awareness, weather, tides, rigging, points of sail, tacking and jibing and general boating safety. Lessons will consist of ‘chalk talks’ on land, and hands on learning on the water. Class is taught in Flying Scots or Marshall 15 catboats. Includes US Sailing Book ‘Learn Sailing Right’. 3 Hours each day.
Come be whisked away on a 2 hour cruise with friends or family as you watch the sun set on the beautiful Duxbury Bay. Sunset Sails will be on a Marshall 15 that will be skippered by a DBMS instructor. Feel free just sit back, relax and enjoy the sail along with any refreshments and snacks you may bring along with you for the ride.
Sunset Sails are suitable for up to four people. For dates and sign up, please check online.
Private lessons are a great opportunity for students to rapidly improve their skills one on one with an instructor. Private lessons can be taken in addition to a sailing class, as recurring private instruction, or as a way to learn to sail for the first time.
Private lessons can be taught by instructor of your choice or we can match you with someone that will fit your sailing goals. Private lessons are scheduled on an individual basis, DBMS is able to accommodate most schedules. Lessons are 1 ½ hours or more. Depending on the lesson, the coach will be in the boat with you or in a powerboat beside you the whole time.
