    • Expanded adult sailing offerings in our growing fleet of Sonar sloops.
    • New classes for youth and adults & families at our New London Ocean Beach location.
    • New weekly themes for all of our marine science classes.

    • New two-week options for Opti Learn to Sail classes.
    • Expanded offerings for our popular Taste of Optis and Second Taste of Optis classes.
