Why choose Sailing Season?
We specialize in teaching adults. Adults typically know what it the best learning strategy is best for them. Our instructors are skilled in changing their style to suit your needs. We take a laid back fun approach to learning that emphasizes hands-on activity with the minimum of theory to pull it all together. If you have sailed before but always were the crew you get your turn to be the captain in our classes. Everyone has a chance to do everything even first-timers.
We don't expect you to perform perfectly consistently, that will take time and muscle memory. But we will practice enough that you will know what good performance looks like. You will then have the confidence that even when you make mistakes you will know how to practice to get better.
Do not be overwhelmed by the number of new terms and rules the sport of sailing includes. Our instructors know all the memory tricks you can use to quickly master the new vocabulary.
Sailing Theory vs Hands-on Experience
At Sailing Season, we are here to ensure your success. We believe a solid foundation is built on both Sailing Theory and Hands-On Practical Experience or “experiential learning”. We will simplify the theory through discussion and demonstration in actual conditions, thus combining both aspects to ensure that our students are confident, competent, and knowledgeable sailors. Our goal is to give you the skill level and confidence to handle a boat safely and get the maximum enjoyment out of sailing.
