Community Sailing Programs at Mystic Seaport
Sail Instruction and Racing for All Ages!
No matter your skill level, you will find sailing at Mystic Seaport an unequaled experience. From beginners to intermediate, from youth to adult, individually or as a family, Mystic Seaport offers a full lineup of sailing programs designed to build and refine sailing skills while nurturing the love of the water. Special homeschool classes and competitive racing series are also available.
Unlike many other sailing programs, Mystic Seaport Community Sailing Programs spend the majority of class time out on the water. Any remaining instruction takes place in a classroom environment. On-water instruction uses fully rigged, 9-foot Dyer Dhows or JY15s. All equipment and instructional materials, except foul-weather gear, are provided as part of each class.
Our youth programs are geared toward beginners and intermediate sailors ages 8-14. Competent swimmers ages 15 and older may enroll in adult classes. Students under 18 must have a parent or guardian sign a health and registration form. The Dyer Dhow Racing Series is open to experienced sailors (ages 15+) that do not require instruction.Community Sailing instructors at Mystic Seaport are experienced sailors certified through either the US Sailing for sailing safety, boat operation, first aid and CPR. Our instructors' love of the water and years of sailing experience provide participants not only with the required technical knowledge, but with practical know-how through hands-on instruction.
