An interest in sailing can lead you to many opportunities, from recreational sailing and racing to ocean voyaging and vacation-cruising on chartered sailboats. You can enjoy sailing individually or as a group, including racing individually or with a team. Sailing is a fun and affordable recreational activity for your whole family.
We offer beginner and intermediate sailing classes for adults throughout the summer. Classes are held in the evenings on two days each week, and each course runs for three weeks.
Offered for children ages 7 and up, our youth sailing programs are designed to teach not only sailing techniques, but personal responsibility, teamwork, and sportsmanship. Many universities have good sailing teams (Ohio State included) so sailing experience can help new college students make friends and fit-in quickly.
We run several one- and two-week beginner, intermediate and adventure sailing classes, as well as 8 one-week racing classes for kids over the summer. All daytime classes run from 8:30 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday, rain or shine, making it a great alternative to traditional summer camps.
