Small Boat Lessons


US SAILING is the primary source of small boat sailing instruction in the United States. Palm Beach Sailing Club is proud to provide a variety of adult small sailboat courses. These courses are taught aboard a 19' day sailing type sailboat. Our Crew Course is for those new to sailing, those who have been out with friends but want to learn more, and those who have been away from the sport and desire to make a successful return. Next step, our Skipper Course is for those wishing to take command of a small sailboat, with others as crew. As always, these courses are regularly scheduled and tailored private lessons can be arranged. We also provide capsize recovery clinics throughout the year for those wishing to acquire US Sailing's "Little Red Book" Small Boat Sailor Certification.
