NESS has recently added seven new programs to their adult sailing line-up. Courses are for ages 16 and older and are offered Saturdays through Thursdays.  
 

Rusty Racing is specifically designed for the "rusty racer" who would like to brush up on the racing rules of sailing. These classes run from Monday, April 18 through Monday, May 23 from 5:30-6:30pm.
 
Race Technique Tuesdays are for sailors of all levels that want to explore in depth keelboat racing techniques. Classes run Tuesday evenings from June 21-August 23 from 5:30-7:30pm.
 
Dinghy Sailing is a comprehensive introduction to dinghy sailing. Classes run Tuesday evenings from June 21-August 30 from 5:30-7:30pm.
 
Family Sailing Wednesdays is designed for the whole family on one of NESS's 23' keelboats. Students will have the opportunity to steer and participate in basic sailing maneuvers. Classes occur Wednesday mornings or afternoons from June 22- August 17.
 
Cruising Thursdays are evening clinics that focus on a different topic every week. Classes are for all levels and run Thursday evenings from June 23-September 1 from 5:30-7:30pm.
 
Big Boat Cruising occurs Saturdays from June 18-August 27 from 9:00am-1:00pm. Students will sail Fishers Island Sound in NESS's 35' cruising boat. With the guidance of an experienced instructor, students learn what it takes to run a big sailboat as part of a team. This course is geared toward the experienced sailor looking for an introduction to larger sailboats, or any level sailor who wants more time on the water.
 
Adult Advanced Sailing runs weekends in May and June. Participants can choose from a morning session (9am-12:30pm) or afternoon session (1:30-5pm). Please call 860-535-9362 for more information.
