Located at Handy Boat in Falmouth Maine six miles north of Portland, I can get you out on the waters of Casco Bay with either sailing lessons or private charter. There are no preset schedules as all of my offerings are on-demand which means you will most likely be the only student for lessons. If I am available when you want to go then that is when you can "Go Sailing". All offerings are conducted on a 30' Pearson sloop, the Marisa III or instruction can be performed on your own vessel.

Build the confidence to sail 22' to 30' sailboats through the Certificate courses. Also available are Private Lessons, Adult Refresher or Basic Navigation. Schedules are flexible and courses are affordable. See Sailing Lessons for more information.


Whether it is a Sunset Sail or a Day Sail, I can get you out on the waters of Casco Bay for a few hours without the structure of a classroom setting. Just relax and enjoy the ride. Listen to the wind in the sails and the rush of the water against the hull. The stress just melts away. Just schedule one of these wonderful ways to enjoy sailing. The adventure will last a lifetime. See Sailing Charter for more information.
