Adult Sailing Instruction

MCSC’s Instruction can be introductory or life-long.

In our Fundamental Sailing courses‚ First-time sailors are paired with experienced instructors initially‚ and‚ as skills and understanding develop‚ students graduate to sail independently with other students. Once "certified" to sail at MCSC‚ members have access to unlimited open sailing aboard our bristol fleet of Ensign keelboats‚ and‚ with proper next level instruction and endorsements‚ many of our 80 shared boats including larger keelboats and centerboard boats.

Students must be members of MCSC. Members enjoy no-charge access to the MCSC fleet when they successfully demonstrate basic sailing skills and earn a rating or when sailing with other "rated" members. MCSC members are connected via a private Group texting "APP"‚ making it possible to meet and sail with a wide range of sailors.

However‚ if sailing is on your bucket-list but you are not ready to become a member‚ MCSC offers "Invitation to Sail" - a two day‚ 6-hour experiential course. You’ll sail with an onboard instructor both days (weather permitting) and learn about safety‚ boarding a boat‚ sailing off the dock‚ sailing to open water‚ steering‚ tacking (turning) and more.
