Group Instruction - Schedule & Rates

Sail Newport offers weekly group adult learn-to-sail, adult intermediate and adult advanced classes from late May through Labor Day weekend, and then on weekends in September. 

Within each session, students of the same skill level work with an instructor, with a maximum ratio of 3:1.  Classes are taught on our fleet of J/22's and Rhodes 19's. All levels of skill are offered each session, providing you with the flexibility to take as many sessions as you wish, when you wish, and make progress towards your goals at your own pace.

Private Instruction

We also offer private instruction, with certified instructors, for all skill levels.  Private lessons provide a one-on-one experience, and work well as a confidence builder, introduction to the sport of sailing, or are a perfect way to focus on improving specific skills and experience.

Private lessons are typically taught in 2 hour (min.) blocks, scheduled at a time that is convenient for you, and based on instructor availability. 

The minimum student age is 10 and older for 1:1 private instruction.

Rates are based on a 1:1 ratio.  There is a fee for additional student(s).  No charge for children under 12 who are "additional" students.
