Charleston Sailing Classes
As a former instructor at theCharleston Marine Institute and a lifelong sailor, Captain John can teach anyone to sail - and make it fun.
Want to try your hand at sailing or hone your skills? Book a Learn to Sail day or weekend and you'll get all the practice time you want, plus you'll learn:
- Sailing basics
- Knot tying
- Sailboat rigging
- Sailing terms
- Rights of way
- Current and tide considerations
- Radio communication procedure and etiquette
- Sail trim
- ...and much, much more.
Captain John tailors instruction to you, your experience, and comfort level. Any time you're ready to take a break from being a student you can convert your sail to a sit-back-and-relax harbor cruise.
Learn to Sail days are typically 6 hours, but you're welcome to build your own class. One day is the perfect introduction to sailing; two days will help increase your confidence, skill and knowledge.( A signed wavier is required before boarding.)
