TAKE THE HELM YOURSELF ….. OR JUST SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE RIDE.
Nothing beats hands on experience when it comes to learning new skills and improving one’s sailing abilities. This year, Discover Sailing created a selection of on water, hands on skill building classes that will add more fun and excitement to your Strictly Sail experience and take your sailing skills up a notch at the same time. All learning events provide hands on practice with an certified instructor and are taught while underway aboard 30’ to 40’ sailboats.
For show goers seeking a little less action, Discover Sailing will once again provide a FREE 45 minute sail on the Bay with an experienced Skipper. It’s been a staple of Strictly Sail boat shows and is a great way to get out on the water and experience the joy of sailing. This event is FREE with paid boat show admission and is conducted daily during the show. Those wishing to participate may register onsite at the Discover Sailing Center.
This year’s expanded lineup includes something for everyone… from absolute beginners to seasoned sailors.
