You’ll be amazed by how much you can learn in just a few hours! Let us know what you'd like to focus on, and we can tailor a lesson or series of lessons for you at any level. Lessons are most effective for 1-3 participants, and total beginners are welcome. Private lessons are a good choice if you're working towards a particular rating here at Courageous, prefer one-on-one coaching, need more scheduling flexibility than our group courses offer, or want to bring a group of mixed ages or experience levels. Most lessons are taught on a Rhodes 19; if you'd like to sail on the slightly larger, higher performance J/22, please contact us directly to buy or schedule your lesson.

If a leisurely cruise or harbor tour is more your style, great! Or combine a little bit of both for a fun, unique experience. Just let your instructor know what you’re looking for, and we’ll do our best to make it happen!


Private Cruising Lesson

Want some coaching on how a cruising boat handles?  If you’d like the chance to get comfortable with one of our cruising boats before taking out the boat on your own or get some pointers in preparation for a charter of your own, take a private lesson with one of our most experienced instructors.  Lessons can be taught on our Erickson 28, CS 30, Pearson 34, Tartan 27, O'Day 240, or J/24, all of which fit from 4 to 5 students.
