Private Sailing Instruction
Private Sailing Instruction:

Familes or small groups who want to learn to sail should consider a private charter with ASA instruction. With a private charter your family or small group can have the entire sailboat to yourselves. We can also be more flexible in terms of objectives in a private class compared to a group class setting. For example, if you have a family where the parents want to get certified to ASA101/103/104 and the kids only want to take ASA101 this would be possible in a private class. The parents could take all three classes over the course of a week and the kids could take all week to get certified to ASA101. A private class also allows us to customize the class to meet your specific needs. For example you and your wife have reserved a boat for charter in coming months and although you sailed a lot years ago you would like a refresher class that focuses on subjects where you think you need help the most. Each private charter includes a USCG licensed captain and ASA instructor. We can accommodate up to five on board our Pearson 39 plus the captain.

Destinations include Annapolis, Saint Michaels, Galesville, Baltimore Inner Harbor, Worton Creek, Fairlee Creek, Georgetown, Herrington Harbor, Solomans Island, or you can visit beautiful anchorages on the West River, South River, Rhode River, or other locations.

You can work with your captain to design the trip of your dreams. Captained charters are of interest to families, newlyweds, small groups of friends, small corporate groups, and others. A captained charter combines a carefree time away from it all with sailing in an exotic location and learning at whatever pace you decide is best for you.
