Youth & Parent Private Lessons (ages 7-12)
November 25, 2019

Youth and Parent private lessons are offered in a Rhodes 19 or an equivalent boat at Polpis Harbor. Private lesson slots can be booked by either adults (up to 2 adults/caregivers) or youth (up to 3 students, ages 7-12). Only a single lesson will be offered in any single time slot. In other words, we have one boat and one instructor. Parents/caregivers can book the slot for themselves or book it for their kids.

Private Lesson Time Slots:

Monday, Wednesday & Friday

  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

Tuesday & Thursday

  • 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
  • 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM

We prefer that any adults, who are interested in lessons, have a student participating with us at Polpis Harbor, as these lessons are limited by the size of Polpis Harbor and the length of time. Adults looking for a more thorough lesson should book our 2-hour adult sailing lessons at the Jetties Sailing Center. These lessons are not intended for a child with a parent. Our Jetties Sailing Center also offers lessons for students ages 13+.

We mandate that students wear appropriate shoes (closed-toe) when participating in a private lesson. While life jackets are provided and required when on the water, each NCS student should be comfortable in and around the water and have basic swimming skills.

Private lessons will also be available during Nantucket Race Week, August 14th - 18th. Lessons will take place Monday - Friday from 10:00 am - 11:30 am and 1:30pm - 3:00 pm. Private lessons will be offered at the Jetties Sailing Center after August 18th. Contact the Jetties Sailing Center to schedule your session.

Please note: NCS does not teach guests or anyone without a medical form. If you have a special circumstance, please call the NCS Office to discuss it in advance of your lesson.

Additional: Private lessons are taught in Optis at our Children's Beach location. Students must have experience in an Opti to book an Opti Private Lesson, or the permission of the NCS Program Director.
