Adult/Family Sailing lessons are taught by our US Sailing certified instructors at Clinton Town Beach. Learn to sail with family & friends!
New sailors will learn basic sailing skills, and returning sailors will have the perfect refresher course. CSC Adult & Family Sailing lessons are taught on CSC’s RS Quest sailing dinghies. Quests are the modern solution for sailing programs across the country. The Quest is simple, stable, and safe, with advanced capabilities that grow along with student’s skills. Each of our four Quests will accommodate up to 4 people – perfect for parents to learn with the kids, or adults to learn with friends – you will get up to speed fast!
Here’s how we teach: a mix of chalk talks and land drills gives everyone a chance to learn basic sailing skills, then go out on the water and practice what you’ve learned. Students will rotate through positions on the boat: helm (steering the boat), mainsail (the big sail), and jib (the little sail). Each student will have plenty of time to practice all these key roles, and by the end of three days, you should feel confident sailing a similar boat with friends. Or take another course with CSC for even more fun!
The details: these 9-hour courses take place over 3 evenings, 5-8pm, Tuesday – Thursday. Choose your session, and remember – sailing is even more fun with family and friends!! Registrations close at 4PM the Friday before each session will be held.

Enrollments are non-refundable. If a sailor backs out of a class at the last minute, there’s little chance to find another to take her place. If we refund that enrollment and can’t find another, we lose that revenue, yet still have to pay our staff, insurance, etc. But we will make every effort to make you happy and to get you on the water if it’s possible to move you to another session. Please also note that we have no control over weather (including rain, thunderstorms, and high wind conditions); while we make every effort to get sailors on the water as much as possible, our first priority is the safety of our students and staff.
