One parent/grandparent sails with one child to ensure each student feels comfortable aboard sailboats, is safe, has fun and learns some sailing concepts, while making new friends and having new experiences.
Each class is limited to eight students (four adults and four children) with two US Sailing certified sailing instructors plus one or two skilled teen mentors.

Safety of our students, staff, and volunteers is our top priority. As the date of a class approaches, we will evaluate guidance and restrictions and reach out to our students if there is anything that will affect their experience. We list current COVID guidance and restrictions on the Sailing School's homepage at www.hrmm.org/sailing-school.
Participants need to be physically able to participate in our sailing classes. Students will need to walk unassisted down a wobbly dock, lift their legs to step over lifelines when boarding some boats, and move comfortably on small, tender centerboard boats. Sailing is a sport and requires some agility and quick reflexes. If you are unsure whether you or your child can handle these physical requirements, please reach out to our Sailing Program Director at email@example.com to discuss how we can accomodate you.
Full refunds will be offered for cancellations that occur 30 days or more before a program's registration deadline (if no deadline, the first day of the program). Cancellations between 30 and 7 days will be offered a 50% refund or credit toward another class. Cancellations after the registration deadline or within 7 days of the first day of class (whichever comes first) will not be refunded.
Our youth sailing program runs every day, regardless of the weather. We sail in light rain and a variety of wind conditions. If weather is dangerous, we will stay ashore and do chalk talks, drills, learning games, etc.
