If you opt to not sleep aboard you are welcome to rent our one bedroom Cottage at a $125 per night rate if available (20-25 minute drive to the marina and first come, first serve), or find other sleeping accommodations.

FAQ: Why is this course three days versus the common two days offered at most sailing schools?
By offering this course as three days it allows us to slow down allowing you to process what you are learning while giving you an additional day to hone your new sailing skills.
