1998 Adult Sailing Class Sandy Bay's adult program is one of the oldest and strongest of all North Shore yacht clubs. Sailing in Rhodes 19s and Bullseyes, students receive hands on instruction in small, personal classes. Adult instruction is available for all ability levels. Whether you're an older teen, young adult, or seasoned salt, a beginner or looking to hone some skills for racing, we offer something for everyone.

Adult instruction is available for all ability levels on a private and semi-private basis. Membership in Sandy Bay Yacht Club is required in order to enroll in our sailing classes... for membership information go to this page.
