Adult Classes

Adult Members Sailing Lessons

Adult Sailing Classes for 2020 are open for Registration.
Note the changes to class format and schedule below.

Classes are full, but signup to be wait listed.


The Corinthian Sailing Club is an all-volunteer club, and all boats are privately owned. Therefore, we are not in a position to offer sailing classes to the general public. However, each spring, we offer adult “learn to sail” courses for regular or associate club members*. A course costs $50, and includes the Learn to Sail textbook plus six class sessions. Training is typically in Flying Scots, Corinthians, and Snipes.

Points to be covered include seamanship, leaving the pier, sailing upwind and on other points of sail, tacking, jibing, returning to pier, rules of the road and basic knots. The sessions will be on the water as long as the weather cooperates. 

Adult Sailing Classes for 2020 have filled, but you can still register for the wait-list.

For 2020, due to safety concerns surrounding Covid-19, we are changing the way we conduct classes. Typically we have one instructor for three to four students per boat and hold six lessons. However, in order to allow for social distancing there will be one student and one instructor per boat and hold three lessons per session.

Session 1 - start date TBD - scheduled for June 4, 9 and 11 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the docks near the clubhouse  - a possible makeup-day for bad weather TBD  Register here.

Session 2 be held on June 16, 18, and 23 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the docks near the clubhouse with the 30th as a possible makeup-day for bad weather.  Register here.

CHECK YOUR EMAIL prior to each class in the event of weather cancellations!  

In the event we are unable to hold these classes, we will issue full refunds.
