Step 2: Beginner

Step 2 is a Beginner Sailing course offered to children ages 9 and up from the Greater Boston Area who are interested in learning more about sailing.

Beginner sailors develop fundamental sailing skills in stable keel boats (Rhodes 19s) with an instructor in each boat. Students receive individualized instruction as we maintain a 3:1 student to instructor ratio in Step 2 – one of the best in the harbor. Each session of Step 2 lasts three weeks, and students typically repeat this Step for a number of summers. Step 2 is a vital step in preparation for more independent sailing in Step 3.


Due to extremely high demand, Step 2 is limited to only those youth who have already participated in a Courageous Sailing summer program at Charlestown, Jamaica Pond, UMass Boston or Camp Harbor View. Click on Registration FAQs for details.
