Courageous provides excellent sailing instruction–for beginner through advanced youth sailors, including courses in racing and cruising–to nearly 1,000 students annually. Our young sailors learn nautical terms, sailing theory, maneuvers, procedures, and the parts of a sailboat. We also have an extensive hands-on environmental education program focusing on exploring the ecosystems in which we sail. Students study pollution prevention, discover local creatures up close, and explore their natural aquatic environments. Courageous is one of the only sailing centers in the nation to employ an in-house environmental education director.
