Adult SailSee our latest COVID-19 related Program changes

If you are new to sailing start with one of the beginner I sailing lessons. You are taught basic sailing skills by a highly qualified staff that is overseen by our US Sailing certified instructors. The classes include on-the-water and on-shore training. Be prepared to set sail on the first day! Topics include: rigging, knots, sailing theory, and boating safety.

Regatta Point is a US Sailing certified facility, so the rating you earn here and transfers elsewhere. Sailors earn ratings by taking classes and passing certifications that enable guest privileges, access to equipment, sail a larger portion of the lake (including the south end) and take out high performance boats. As you earn different levels, US Sailing will issue you national certification.

Been awhile since you were on the water? Take a refresher class.

An old salt? Bring your certification from another organization or do a quick checkout and you’ll be on the water in no time.

Unplug, unwind and reconnect! Nothing builds life long memories while spending time together-in a sailboat!

There are very few activities that families can enjoy together – hiking, skiing and sailing comes to mind. Regatta Point Community Sailing has recently developed a family sailing program that builds skills similar to those you would learn from a team building program. Whether it’s building a stronger family unit, developing a foundation for a new relationship or just spending a fun Friday night together as a family – nothing hits the marks like Family Fridays at Regatta Point Community Sailing.

This sailing program is for 2 adult (21+) and up to three children (7-17).

Sailboat Racing – Every Tuesday starting after Memorial Day.

Skipper’s meeting at 5:30
First race at 6:00

Beginners and advanced sailors, skippers and crew, all are welcome! Safety, Fun, and Racing!

There is no better way to hone your sailing skill than racing. Racing involves boats sailing towards the same place. When one boat is sailing faster than the other, it is a great time to look and see how they are achieving their speed. Maybe the boat is sailing faster because they have their sail trimmed different or perhaps it’s where their weight is placed in the boat. Whatever the case, everyone is certain to have a great time and learn tons about sailing. Participants who wish to skipper a boat must have their helmsman rating. Sailors without their helmsman are always welcome to join in as crew for other skippers. We always need crew.

No racing experience is needed. We teach the basics of racing skills in the Beginner II class.

In addition to having a great time on the water, our family and adult membership also includes access to fun social events all season long.
