The 2014 season will begin April 5th!

Sailing is Fun 

Learn a skill that will last a lifetime. No matter your age or ability - experience the freedom of effortlessly gliding through the water powered by nature.

Mark Twain said it best in this short paragraph: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."
