Learn to Sail @ Mystic Seaport!
Posted on April 30, 2017
(Mystic, CT)- Come celebrate the start of summer with the opening of the Mystic Seaport Sailing Center on Saturday, May 13. From 10 am to 2 pm, we’ll have a barbeque and a “meet and greet” with our staff. If the wind is good, we’ll even have some boats out on the water to sail!
Mystic Seaport’s summer Community Sailing classes will begin June 19th. With options for adults, women, and children ages 8 and up, the classes are the perfect way to introduce new sailors to the fundamentals of the sport while fostering a love for time on the water. The JY-15 is the core instructional boat of our Community Sailing fleet, and all instructors are U.S. Sailing Certified.
Finally, visitors to Mystic Seaport this summer will have a new way to connect with America’s maritime heritage. Beginning June 28th, visitors to the Museum on Wednesday and Thursday evenings (5:30 pm – 7:30 pm), will have the opportunity to sail a JY 15 or Dyer Dhow belonging to the Museum’s Community Sailing Center. At $10 per family per session, it’s the best way to enjoy sunset on the Mystic River. Add to Flipboard Magazine.
