Private Sailing Lessons



Thank you for a great season!  At this point our calendar is full, and we are unable to accept any more registrations.

Hopefully the world will be back to normal next summer, and we can resume our normal schedule.  Stay healthy and come back next summer!


During the COVID-19 Crisis

As you may know, the COVID19 pandemic has resulted in some drastic changes to all of our programs this summer. We will continue to offer private lessons and outings, but with certain changes to ensure your safety, and that of our staff and their families.

Accordingly, lessons and outings will be limited to two students per boat if they are in the same family, or if they arrived together in the same car. Otherwise, we will be allowing only one student at a time.   This, of course, will translate into a more personal experience for you.

We will require that masks be worn at all times when on board.

The LWSA has taken great care to set up procedures that are safe and consistent with good practice during this crisis. Please

Private Sailing Lessons


Our experienced staff is here for you! What would you like to do?

We will work with you or your family at times that are convenient to you, and at your own pace.

We provide the boat, large or small, or if you prefer, we will coach you on your own sailboat.


Private lessons cost $60 per hour for one person; add a second person for only $25 more per hour.  Contact us by email .


Private Excursions / Outings

And if you do not want instruction, but would just like to go sailing on beautiful Lake Winnipesaukee, we can arrange that as well. Whether you are arranging a family outing or a team event for your business, just contact us to discuss your needs.
