Adult Sail Classes

HSC’s Adult Sailing Program is designed for adults who have little or no knowledge about sailing, teaching them everything that they will need to know to go sailing on their own, buy their own boat, or crew on one of our Member’s racing sailboats.

Rigging, sail theory, crew positions, knot tying, and teamwork are just some of the topics covered in our three week courses. The courses combine classroom instruction with on-the-water practice. All classes are taught by well-qualified sailing instructors and are designed to build skills and confidence in a safe and encouraging environment.

Hoover Adult Sailing Classes are a chance to meet new friends, make sailing connections, and learn skills that will keep you sailing for the rest of your life.
