The Weather is Lovely ~ Be Part of The Rich History of Sailing

Capri 25 under sail

You will be learning on a beautiful, well-maintained stable in the water, Capri 25 foot sailing yacht that is much better than a Summer Camp tiny sailboat

(see also First Coast Magazine picture and notice larger size of the cockpit) which is much safer than a cheaper small sailboat that can capsize

(capsize=boat flips over and dunks the sailors and their belongings in the water, is potentially even risky, and then the sailboat has to be “righted” which means the boat has to be turned right-side up which can be challenging)

By now, you might be considering purchasing our Learn to Sail on-the-water Intro course for yourself or you and another person.
