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: $120

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: $60/hr, minimum of two hours. 

Private lessons are available weekday evenings and on weekends throughout the Spring, Summer and Fall.  Lessons are available in our Sonars, 420s, Optimists  and Capri 14.2s.

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: $240 per session.

 

Beginner Saturday Classes:
The Beginner Saturday Course follows the same syllabus as the evening class but is run over the course of two Saturdays. Each class runs from 9am to 4pm with an hour lunch break. Cost: $240 per person.

 

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 Capris and Sonars. Class runs from 5:45 to 7:45 PM at CBC’s Clarks Cove site. Cost: $240 per session. (Prerequisite – One Beginner Session)
