If your goal is to learn new sailing skills, consider going back to school! No matter what your goals are—cruising, racing, catamaran sailing, whatever!—there is a sailing school that's right for you. If you're just looking to get your feet wet, or are looking simply for an easy and affordable way to get out on the water, check out a community sailing program near you. Most offer affordable lessons and boat rentals, and some offer special programs for disabled or elderly sailors. To find a program near you, just Google the name of your town along with "community sailing".
