What you'll learn in this sailing lesson:

Students attending this class will feel the warm breeze in their hair and be awed by the brilliant colors of an NYC sunset as it sets behind the hills of New Jersey.

Watch the city wind down from a new perspective. This can be a mini-lesson for those looking to learn or a relaxing way to kick back and relax its up to you. There is no better way to relax than skimming along the smooth water on a graceful and quiet sailboat at sunset.

Refund & Cancellation Policy
