Summer 2021 NEWS

While COVID will still be with us this summer, we have developed a plan to get more kids and adults on the water while still keeping everyone safe.

Last season was tough on everybody, as we operated on a very limited basis with fewer kids and a limited course selection.  Thanks to our whole community for all of the support last summer. 


Our plans for 2021 will bring the sailing school experience a lot closer to normal for children of all ages!
