First Sail Experience

Sailing is the perfect activity for anyone who enjoys being on the water and outdoor recreation. It can be exciting or relaxing. Sailors can race every week, sail leisurely on the weekends with friends, or plan to sail around the world. Sailing has something for everyone.

The First Sail experience is a casual, friendly sail with a local skipper. First Sailors can participate as much as they would like. 

Because sailing is an activity that depends on many variable conditions, First Sail Skippers will contact you before your sailing experience to confirm time, location, and other details.

What should I bring?
