Starter Sailor

Save The Bay discovery

For our younger and/or first-time sailors, the morning will be spent learning first hand the fun of sailing. Our young new sailors will learn about boats, experience sailing with instructors and begin to develop a comfort level with boats. Following a morning of sail, the youngsters will take a boat ride to the neighboring Save The Bay Center for a fun-filled afternoon of Bay-centered activities, fostering a love of Narragansett Bay in our youngest bay-stewards, featuring, for example, bay-exploration, playing the role of lobsterman for the day, or learning about creatures of the bay!

Full day classes meet Monday through Friday 9:00 (drop-off at Edgewood Sailing School) to 4:00 pm (pick-up at Save The Bay Center, Fields Point, 100 Save The Bay Drive, Providence). Morning-only classes end at 12 noon at Edgewood Sailing School.
