2018 Schedule ?

Basic 1 classes are too busy to schedule very far out, so we don't try. Call 503-281-6529 or email portlandsailing at gmail dot com (use normal format, no spaces, all lower case) to ask about availability. If you have schedule challenges we can probably match you with students who are more flexible. We are rarely more than a couple weeks away from the start of a fresh class. (You won't be bugged or spammed)

Weeknight classes meet 6:00 to 8:30, two evenings per week. These classes generally experience the best conditions, and the two lessons per week pace is about perfect. Which evenings will be determined according to student and instructor availability. Tell us your can and can't do days.

Or. If you can't make weeknights you can join a weekend group (all boats have four students, one instructor). These classes meet Saturday or Sunday (sometimes both) in the afternoon. Either way, weeknights or weekends, Basic 1 meets at least six times, 2 1/2 hours per lesson.

Big Boats and Cruising is demand driven. We'll run the class when we have interested students.

Sea Trials and Bonneville are overnighters, also demand driven. Sea Trials (thee days, two nights) requires coordination with tides, but there is always at least one weekend per month with a good tide for safe bar crossing. We can do Bonneville (two days, one night) just about any time.

Sign up

Sign-up can be confirmed by email. Your word holds your place in lieu of a 50% non-refundable deposit. Payment can be made on the first day of class, check or cash only, no cards, thank you. Please remember there are only three or four students per boat, so we and your fellow students take your promise seriously.
