A great mini-vacation class where you can bring your family while learning sailing. Class is limited to four people (and they do not need to be related; can be four friends). Kids must be 11 years old or older and accompanied by an adult. Participation in sailing the boat is not required; you can just sit back and enjoy Lake Tahoe. We will cover as much material as you want to learn, time and weather permitting. The entire class will be aboard the boat including about a half-hour 'chalkboard' session to go over theory. Active sailors are encouraged to obtain a sailing book for study. Book examples are 'Sailing Fundamentals', 'Annapolis Book of Seamanship', 'Start Sailing Right', 'Sailing Made Easy'. If you would like us to send you a book, please add $25 to your class. Not for ASA certification.
Cancellation Policy; A full class credit will be issued to you if for any reason you must cancel your sailing class or charter ten days before start of class or charter. Credit is good for one year after the first date of enrollment. Credits are transferable to friends or family members. If cancelling within ten days of start of class or charter there are no refunds, unless you have purchased the refund insurance described below. Cancellations due to weather will be given a credit. Cash refunds are granted if you purchased Refund Insurance (see below). Special Note: for Basic Coastal Navigation class (ASA 105), there is no credit extended if you cancel. You may receive a refund if you purchased the refund insurance.
Refund Insurance; Unexpected events sometimes arise and force us to change our plans. Sailing Ventures offers our sailing students Refund Insurance for $45 per class and per student--due at the time of enrollment. Refund Insurance entitles you to a full refund of class tuition should you cancel your enrollment more than ten days prior to the start of your class. If you cancel within ten days of the start of your class, you will receive a full credit of your tuition valid for one year from your original class date. Credit is transferable to friends and family members, and is good for all Sailing Ventures classes.
