Never Sailed Before?
If you've never sailed before, we start with the basics, to ensure you gain a thorough understanding. If you have sailed before, but just need to brush up on your skills we can custom tailor a learning program just for you. All SailTime Members must be ASA101 and 103 certified to bareboat sail their SailTime boat for safety and insurance reasons. We make this the best possible experience with 1 on 1 lessons that provide 30+ hours of on-the-water training that guarantees you the skills and confidence to sail your SailTime boat on your own. Need lessons but don't want to become a Member of SailTime? We try to accommodate all sailors but please understand that Members get preferential pricing and access to limited instructional time available in the season..
