Foiling Lessons

Foiling Lessons with Nantucket Community Sailing

Fly over Nantucket Harbor on the foiling Waszp and hear the buzz! We're now offering foiling lessons to athletic, advanced sailors looking for a new experience. The Waszp is a one-design, single-handed foiling boat intended for 8-10+ kts of breeze. Lessons will be hands-on, focusing on balance, boat-handling, apparent wind, fitness, and other advanced and high-speed sailing skills and techniques.

Sail a Waszp - Second-Half of Summer Pricing!

Don't let time run out - get out on these boats and get foiling. The experience is unbeatable.

Lessons will be held at Great Harbor Yacht Club and may be purchased for individual instruction (private) or clinic-style (semi-private, where sailors will switch on and off). Sailors must have an advanced level of dinghy sailing experience and must be fit enough for this style of sailing. Ages 13+ (or by permission of the Instructor).

$400 for 3-hr private lesson (single individual)
or book a single seat in a clinic:
$150 per person for a 3-hr private lesson, minimum two people, maximum three people.
