Once learned, sailing is an activity that one can enjoy for a lifetime, especially when one lives on an island. Just look around.

Choice of classes include either one week or two week periods, and Monday-Friday, through the month of July. The fee is $140 with early registration discount, scholarships based on income eligibility are available for San Juan Island children.

Additional classes include a “basics” class for teens and adults, and a special two-week class for those who just can’t seem to get enough.
