Adult Learn to Sail Course
Learn to Sail Opportunities at The Birmingham Sailing Club
Have you had a life-long dream to try your hand at sailing, or did you sail years ago and want to get back into the sport? The Birmingham Sailing Club can make that happen!
Adult Learn to Sail Class
This course is designed with the goal of providing participants with the hands-on experience needed to sail a small boat on a fair-weather day. You will receive sixteen hours of instruction from experienced sailors/instructors, both ashore and on the water. You will also spend time sailing a club-owned sailboat with on-the-water coaching.
The next Learn to Sail (LTS) classes are June 3-4, 2023 (this class is full) and June 10-11, 2023. The class is on Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Plan to spend most of the day outside so bring plenty of sunscreen. Please bring a life jacket, lunch, and a water bottle. Water is available on premises.
The cost of the course is $250.00 for the weekend. A Learn to Sail Right textbook will be mailed to you upon registration. Follow the registration link below to register.
For those people who join the club, or who are already members, an additional day of one-on-one instruction will be included.
Wednesday / Thursday Night Fun Races
Our Wednesday or Thursday Night Fun Races offer an opportunity to spend an evening aboard a Flying Scot, Thistle, or keelboat and “round the marks” in a just-for-fun regatta. You will sail with an easy-going, experienced skipper who will explain the science and art that is sailing. Check BSC’s homepage for dates.
If you are interested in the Fun Races, contact the Education Chairperson and they will make the necessary arrangements.
For those people who are 18 or younger the Junior Sailing Program offers several sailing opportunities.
Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on the water!
