Adult Sailing Programs

Are you ready to learn to sail, looking for a sailing refresher, or just want to get out on the water? At CSC, we’ve got options to get you sailing!

Columbia Sailing Club offers this unique on-the-water opportunity designed to provide a memorable experience that will motivate newcomers to continue sailing. Our Adult “Learn to Sail” program was created to teach adults how to sail through group lessons (offered quarterly) or private lessons on your schedule.  Each private lesson is designed to be 3 hours long with 2+ hours on the water and 45 minutes of rigging, chalk talk and de-rigging.


Participants that have completed the program have really enjoyed the experience and love that they now feel completely comfortable sailing on their own or with friends.
