Basic Sail Course Information

The Basic Sail Course is usually held three times a year and consists of two online lectures and On-the-Water (OTW) classes. OTW classes are on Meadow Lake at Flushing Meadows Corona Park. For the Spring and Fall intensive sessions, the OTW classes are planned for Saturdays. For the Summer session, OTW classes will be in the evenings on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays or in the mornings on Saturdays. Students will be assigned to a particular day for OTW classes based on stated preferences and volunteer availability.

Please note that for the 2022 season, we are currently only accepting fully vaccinated students. If you are not vaccinated, we require a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to participating in OTW classes. Contact with any questions or concerns.

**Spots are limited for the 2022 season and will be on a first come, first served basis.**
