Private Lessons

Private Lessons - 2018

The Junior Division is once again offering private and group lessons sold in 4-hour blocks to juniors in the Club's Optis, Lasers and 420s. The lessons will be taught by the Opti Development Team coaches. Each lesson is tailored by the coach to meet the needs of the individual sailor or group, and is taught off the Club's beach. The lessons are designed to capitalize on one-on-one instruction, and are a great follow up to the group lessons offered during Opti Kids and Junior Week.

In addition to juniors, we will offer lessons on Club Lasers or 420s to adults, and again, the lessons will be tailored to the needs of the sailor. Group lessons are available.

To schedule lessons please contact the coordinator, Julie Chapman at or (804) 690-0215. Non-members are welcome.


All lessons must be prepaid with a minimum block of 4 hours.

Payments are nonrefundable; no-shows or cancellations less than 2 hours before the lesson are deducted at the full rate.
