Cape Cod sailing lessons and sailing school
Cape Cod sailing lessons are available on the 35' Southern Cross or the
16' day sailer. Instruction is done privately and by arrangement.
I try to suit your schedule (day or night, weekends, weekdays, etc.) Let Bob help you create your own
sailing school program.
The Basic Course
(6 hours for the small boat, 9 hours for the large)
The basic course of private sailing instruction enables students to
become proficient at sailing a triangular course - all points of the
wind. Students rig the boat and are at the helm within the first
fifteen minutes of their first session. Sail trim, helmsmanship,
safety, terminology and boat care are integrated into every lesson.
Three blocks of sailing instruction increase the likelihood of encountering
different conditions of wind and sea.
2-hour blocks for the 16' day sailer and 3-hour
blocks for the 35' Southern Cross. Some folks prefer longer blocks of
instruction and fewer days.
Overnight Sailing Instruction
is recommended for those with some experience who are considering
cruising their own boat or doing a bare boat charter. Typically this
is a Nantucket trip which involves about six hours of instruction
each day. Add Martha's Vineyard for three days of sailing instruction.
Personal attention and hands on sailing instruction make this a great
alternative to sailing school.
Captain Bob Rice will also do instruction or "brush-up" on
your own boat.
