Please help us continue and expand our programs.
Sailing for everyone.
We offer 16 Hours of sailing lessons in co-ed and women only classes aboard our fleet of stable centerboard and keel boats. The course curricula are designed for beginners who want a basic sailing course, and for intermediate sailors with more experience. In 2012, we will be offering intermediate classes for both cruisers and racers. A low 4:1 student-to-instructor ratio in all of our adult courses ensures lots of personal attention and time at the helm.
Class formats vary. You can take week-long courses, five-week courses and weekend intensive courses. All courses are 16 Hours in total, nearly all spent under sail with additional makeup hours included in the schedule for occasional weather related cancellations.. For a view of course times and availability, please visit our schedule page. To register for a class, please fill out our registration and emergency contact forms and send them to us.
Our 3 hour refresher course is perfect for sailors 12 or older who want to renew their sailing skills. This course is a prerequisite for participation in our Friday Summer Series for those who have not taken part in another sailing program at SalMaine.
We also offer sailing lessons for families, and private instruction designed to your individual needs and schedule. Follow the links to learn more. To arrange for family lessons, or private instruction, please contact us.
Our Friday Summer Series, featuring casual racing or open sailing in the vicinity of Portland Harbor, runs 5:00 - 8:00 pm June 15th - September 28th. A SailMaine basic course or equivalent is required for participation, so pick your class and join us on the water!
