Adult Sailing Programs

Stage Harbor Sailing School offers a variety of Adult focused classes and racing opportunities. Our adult program is a great way for our members to get back into a sport they loved as a child or learn something completely new. Learn more about our offerings below.


Sailing for Adults Clinics

Friday, 1330-1600

Clinics will include both onshore and on-water instruction in our club Day Sailers. Each week we will focus on a range of skills, from rigging, points of sail, and upwind and downwind sailing to the more intermediate/advanced skills of introduction to racing, sail trim, tactics, and rules of racing. Please refer to our Sailing for Adults Clinics page for more details.



Adult Fun Sail 

Mondays and Wednesdays, 1330-1530

Adult Fun Sails are offered  every Monday and Wednesday afternoons and no registration or experience is required. The Fun Sails feature a 90-minute sail in our Club Day Sailers. Sailing School staff usually accompany the Fun Sails in either a chase boat or the Day Sailers. All levels are welcome.



Private Instruction, Recreational Sailing & Club Boat Usage

Members may use Club boats for private instruction. Please refer to our Private Lesson page for more detail. Adults may use Club boats recreationally while a SHSS staff member is on duty.




Club Racing Fleets

Intra-club racing is a long-standing tradition amongst Stage Harbor sailors. We have many options throughout each week. See SHYC Racing Fleets.
