Lessons



Have you ever taken a sailing class only to walk away at the end feeling like it's all gone over your head? It happens all the time because if the big sailing schools can make it seem complicated, you will probably come back for several more classes!

Sailing is very simple and just common sense. Holly has taught 5 year olds how to sail and row in a few hours (with the help of some m&m's!).

Don't work yourself into a panic over the whole thing. It's simple, fun and the best way to share time with your friends and family.
