Sailing Instruction Information and Rates

Private lessons are available at all skill levels.

The basic six hour course starts with the student and instructor sailing together in a boat best suited for your comfort level. You may start with a Sunfish, a Trimaran, or a Capri 16.5 and move on to another boat as your skills progress. The next part of the lesson is two hours sailing out to an island and back with the instructor in one boat and the student in another. Some of the topics for the small boat course are wind awareness, terms and boat parts, rigging, knots, points of sail, turning (tacking and gybing), safety, weather, sail trim, capsize recovery, and most of all feeling the enjoyment and magic of sailing.

The price of the six hour course is $240.

We at Bimini Bay Sailing feel that the best way to learn to sail is on a smaller boat.
