Dinghy private lessons are available from May to August. Programs are 3 hours in length and will be tailored to your skill level (beginner through advanced). You can earn nationally recognized CANSail certifications by taking our classes. In three to six lessons, you can achieve CANSail 2 which is necessary for club boat use.

Private lessons can be scheduled, for youth or adults to suite a variety of needs, interests, or occasions: skill improvement, membership skill assessment, membership orientation, group birthday, or team building activities.

New for 2021, private lessons can now be booked online for one, two, or four participants. If a double handed boat (two people) is used, participants must identify as living in the same private residence otherwise you can sail single handed. The private lesson offerings will be revised regularly, with new events added for coming weeks and un-booked lessons retired. We ask that one person register and provide contact information, a brief description of the lesson’s goal, and names of each sailing participant. You will meet your coach at the Old Mill Boathouse and complete an acknowledgement of risk or waiver, prior to the lesson.
