Adult Classes

Adult Members Sailing Lessons

Adult Sailing Classes for 2021 are Open for Registration starting 4/1/2021.


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 three 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. 

For 2021, due to safety concerns surrounding Covid-19, we are changing the way we conduct classes. To allow for social distancing there will be one student and one instructor per boat and hold three lessons per session.

Session 1 will be held on May 11, 13 and 18 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the docks near the clubhouse with a possible makeup-day for bad weather on the 20th  Register here (Registration starts 4/1/2021)

Session 2 be held on June 8, 10, and 15 from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on the docks near the clubhouse with the 17th as a possible makeup-day for bad weather.  Register here (Registration starts 4/1/2021)
