Sign up for Lesson 1 (Intro to Sailing) on June 7
All of our lessons are 2 hours and taught by a USCG certified captain who has years of sailing experience. Lessons are separated into 4 levels with each introducing you to new skills and building on what you’ve previously learned.
You'll learn alongside other Gearhouse members, and will have access to boats to take out on Lake Union after you've qualified.
Multiple series will be run, so reach out to us at email@example.com if you'd like to take lessons on a different date.
