Adult and Family Program

At CBC we offer sailing lessons to everyone. No kid is too young and no adult is too old. Lessons are especially fun for families or small groups.


3 Hour Skippered Sail: $240

Do you want to be able to experience all Buzzards Bay has to offer but aren’t too interested in taking lessons? Sign up for a three hour skippered sail! One of our US Sailing certified instructors will take you out on one of our 23 foot Sonars. Maximum of six people.



Private Lessons: $80/hr, minimum of two hours for the first person. Each additional person adds another $20/hr 

Private lessons are available weekday evenings and on weekends throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall.  Lessons are available in our Sonars, 420s, Pico’s, and Bahia’s.



Adult Lessons       

If the times and sessions on the application don’t work for you please call the center and speak with Ric. We may have interest from other people looking to set up another session and will happily accommodate people if possible.

Beginner Evening Classes:
Take the first steps to discovering the sport that defines the Southcoast summer. Board a 23‐foot keelboat and head out into Buzzards Bay. Emphasizing safety and fundamentals, a US Sailing certified CBC instructor takes you through six two‐hour classes of essential nautical know‐how. Master the basics: equipment and safety, parts of the boat, sailing terminology, fundamentals of navigation and more. You will be hooked in no time! Class runs from 5:45 to 7:45 PM at CBC’s Clarks Cove site. Cost: $250 per session.


Intermediate Evening Classes:

This twelve-hour, three week course is designed to further sailors’ skills beyond what they learned in our beginner class and make sailors confident enough to take out their own boat. With a small student to instructor ratio, sailors will have lots of tiller time to master upwind sailing, docking, mooring, man overboard, as well as learn more about navigation. The course is held in both Bahia’s and Sonars. Class runs from 5:45 to 7:45 PM at CBC’s Clarks Cove site. Cost: $250 per session. (Prerequisite – One Beginner Session)
