RBSA exists to promote the wonderful activity of sailing and offers private lessons to anyone over the age of 6. Lessons can be scheduled from 9 am to 4 pm on any weekday, holiday or weekend from June 10 through Labor Day. Instruction can be tailored to meet your needs ranging from the fundamentals for beginners to improving intermediate skills for more advanced sailors.  Advance reservations are required to ensure availability of instructors as well as the type of boat you want to use. Choices are: Sunfish, Flying Scot (a day sailor), or Hobie Wave (a catamaran).

Private lessons are $200 for a two hour lesson per person for non-members and $120 per a two hour lesson per person for members.
