2020 Adult Keelboat Update

National Yacht Club is launching 2020 Adult Keelboat Learn to Sail courses in a semi-private format beginning in August. To facilitate physical distancing for COVID-19 we have reduced class size and implemented several  COVID-19 protocols for the course, which among other measures includes the requirement of wearing a facial covering and completion of daily screening form.

Basic Cruising Course

Semi-Private Lessons

Special Offer - Course Fee is Inclusive of NYC 2020 Intro Crew Membership (value of $508)!

Learn to crew and skipper a keelboat in our 28-hour comprehensive course, designed to build comfort and introduce key concepts to first-time sailors. In this course you will develop the skills needed to sail on coastal waterways and charter boats in vacation destinations.

In 2020 we will be offering the course in a semi-private format, with a maximum of 2 students per instructor. This format allows for physical distancing with the added value of increased one-on-one time with your instructor and more direct boat handling time for each student.

Basic Cruising Course materials included. Upon successful completion you will be awarded Sail Canada’s Basic Cruising Standard or the Basic Crew Standard.
