2024 Adult Sailing Courses

Beginner Adult Sailing

The Greater Richmond Sailing Association will host Adult Learn to Sail weekends throughout 2023!  No experience needed!  These two-day courses will teach the foundations of sailing skills: parts of the boat, points of sail, tacking/jibing, sail trim, knots, helmsmanship, and rules of the road.  The weekend is hands on with more time spent on the water learning and practicing the skills, than in the classroom.  Class size is limited to ensure a low student to instructor ratio providing for individualized instruction.  Students will learn to sail in GRSA’s fleet of 19' Flying Scots.  Please bring an adventurous spirit, life jacket (well-fitted Coast Guard approved Type III personal flotation device (PFD)), lunch, snacks, sunscreen, towel, a water bottle, and sailing attire for two full days of fun on and in the water.  Fee includes a personal copy of US Sailing's current student training manual, a completed Certification Record Book through US Sailing, and two full days of instruction.
