August is right around the corner...

August is right around the corner...which means school will soon be back in session. If you haven't signed you or your child up for sailing lessons at NESS, now's the time to do it! A few of our youth sailing programs still have availability (see descriptions below) and we also offer all levels for adults now through October. And, if you've always wondered about sailing but haven't taken the leap yet, check out our Top Ten Reasons to Sail at NESS.

Second Taste of Optis 

Second Taste for ages 7-11 is meant to build upon the foundation of sailing skills taught in the Taste of Optis course. Take the next step to reinforce parts of the boat, sailing lingo, and overall comfort on the water. This class uses both the Opti Trainer and Optimist dinghy as students are guided to sail on their own by the end of the week. Prerequisite: Taste of Optis. Learn more 

Keelboat Adventures

Keelboat Adventures for ages 8-12 is a perfect fit for students who want to learn to sail on bigger boats. Our 23' foot Sonar will take students around Fishers Island Sound. A NESS instructor will be on board while students learn how to work as a team. This class will cover the basics of rigging, steering, and navigating, all while having fun. Learn more 

Bic Blasting Adventures

This class is for sailors who want to go blasting around in these fun and fast boats. The O'pen Bic is an easy-to-rig boat that looks and feels completely different than the Opti. The perfect class to join other students ages 9-13 who already know how to sail and want to try a different type of boat. Learn more
