Learn to Sail Part 2 + Membership Combo
Maybe you learned to sail a long time ago and are new to Courageous, or you feel like a refresher would be a good idea before you set out on the Boston Harbor for another season; every season we have students just like you come to us with sailing experience that could benefit from a course that helps to “shake the rust off”. Learn to Sail 2 is the second half of our Learn to Sail Complete course and revisits many of the basics, readying students to join our membership for a full season of fun on the water.
More about the course
By the end of the twelve hours, you will arrive at the same place as those who take the 24-hour Learn to Sail Complete (Parts 1 and 2), eligible for a Courageous skipper rating (which means you can sail without an instructor!) and (an optional) US Sailing Basic Keelboat certification. Many students taking this course are either self taught, took a similar course at a different club, or completed lessons a few years ago and are looking to brush up. If you arn’t sure if you need the full 12 hours, we recommend starting with a 2-hour private lesson and our instructors can make a personalized recommendation following your one-on-one. For a full list of the curriculum please visit our Learn to Sail 2 page.

Cancellation and Refund Policy: Please note that in an effort to keep our courses and memberships as affordable as possible, we must limit changes in schedule and membership. Because staff and instructors are hired and scheduled in advance, Courageous memberships, lessons, and/or other program fees are not refundable for any reason, including cancellation due to weather, or the participant’s inability to utilize the membership, lesson, or program. That said, we do understand that sometimes life gets in the way of sailing plans and, if necessary, we will work with you to reschedule for a later date. We cannot reschedule lessons within two weeks of their start date unless we are able to fill the spot with another student. All rescheduled lessons purchased before September 1 must be completed before the end of the season for which they were purchased; if purchased between September 1 and October 31, rescheduled lessons must be completed before June 30 of the following year.
