Larger Performance Multihull

If you prefer a dryer sail, we can team aboard one of our larger performance charter catamarans, like a Stiletto-27.

Understanding the righting moment and proper handling of a larger performance multihull is an important sailing skill.

Small boat private sailing instruction

Ready to get onto the water and into the fun sport of small boat sailing? We have a 420 and a Flying Scott and can teach on either boat. If you participate in your local community sailing organization and want to level up, private instruction is also available on Optimist class.
