Adult Basic Courses

MCSC’s nationally acclaimed basic sailing instruction incorporates classroom theory and on-the-water practice. Our 8-session‚ 24 hour courses during a two-week period makes learning safe‚ effective and fun. Most students earn a Light Air Rating upon completion of the basic course. You will learn and practice basic sailing techniques like tacking‚ jibing‚ docking and proper sail trim. Become familiar with sailing terms‚ rigging and right-of-way rules.

Adult Basic Classes meet Monday through Thursday for two weeks. Fridays may be used as make up class days in case of inclement weather. There is also a "Weekend Intensive" option that we recommend for people with some experience‚ or a tight schedule! These classes are Friday evening‚ and all day Saturday and Sunday.

Students who wish to take these courses must be members of MCSC in order to register for classes.
