Adaptive Sailing 

Our Adaptive Intro to Sailing class is specifically tailored to the needs of each participant and/or each group of participants. This class is provisioned for one student, one caregiver, plus an instructor on each boat, however, this may vary depending on the comfort level and abilities of the instructor and/or participant(s). The adaptive program may rotate through sailing, kayaking, and paddle boarding depending on the group and the weather. While paddle boards are very popular to stand on, they can also be used to either sit on or lie down on as well. If a student is interested spending a bit more time on land, they are welcome to spend time enjoying the beach or other dry land activities. Your group can come early with their own lunch and eat lunch as a group with our instructors.

For those days when our staff has to make the decision that the weather outside simply isn't safe to be on the water your class will be moved into our indoor classroom where you will enjoy several sailing related activities. We encourage individual growth by challenging one’s self all while fostering a love for the water and sailing. We look forward to enjoying a fun and safe day on the water with you!

We are committed continuing to grow our network of program partners of all physical and cognitive abilities. If you know a group that may like to partner with us have them email or call 920-393-1983. We are also more than willing to reach out to an organization upon your request.
