Learn to Sail

The Hoover Sailing Club Sailing School offers a variety of classes, racing, and outdoor activities structured around the water. Our courses teach kids and adults the skills necessary to enjoy sailing.

Junior Sailing

Some kids get the most fun out of capsize “drills” and sponge fights, some want to race, and some like to travel to different lakes best. Our junior sailing program offers something for everyone.

Club Racing

We have club racing on Sundays and Wednesdays throughout the season. Come and cheer on our sailors, crew for them during the races, or even just hitch a ride if you’ve never sailed before.
