Keelboat Sailling Lessons

Written by Cleve Corlett.

The Ware River Yacht Club offers informal sailing instruction while day-cruising on our new keelboats, Wagtail and Snagglepuss -- at no charge!

We also offer more formal FREE sailing classes using our new keelboats. With beginner lessons to more advanced lessons, as requested, we can take even the most novice sailor through everything they need to know to confidently sail on their own.

Participation is open to non-members as well as members. Our goal is get people on the water so they can safely enjoy all the great boating the Gloucester area has to offer. This is a perfect opportunity for you, family or friends to learn to sail!

If you or someone you know is interested, please contact Steve Hanson at 713-248-8402.
