Carlyle Sailing Association

Member Sailing Lesson

A special introductory sailing course for members only

CSA is offering a three-hour introductory sailing lesson utilizing our existing members who will be able to work off as much as their entire membership fee for the following year by giving sailing lessons.

At the end of this three hour lesson, you should be able to tack, jibe, dock, depart (or beach in the case of catamarans) and know the basic right-of-way rules.

After three hours, the instructor will step off of the boat and you will have time to practice what you just learned.

Qualified CSA members can use the fleet boats based on a first come first serve reservation system.  We can set up lessons on your own boat if needed. 

At this time, the program is only for members at the very very low price of $85.00 per lesson. That’s by yourself, or you can arrange to share the cost with another member. No more than two students per lesson.

Want a bonus? Show up early and learn how to launch the boat properly. This is something that you should know to be able to launch the boat when you're ready to go out without an instructor.

It's very helpful to bring your own life jackets, water, sunscreen, etc.
