TACS is not for children only, each season we offer learn to sail sessions to the adults in our community as well. Evening and weekend sessions make this the perfect way to learn to sail! Taught on Lasers and 420’s, each session will meet two times a week for two weeks, the 4 classes will run from 6:00PM to 9:00PM on Monday & Tuesday evenings at the Cornwell Sailing Center located on the North end of the Boardman Lake. Teaches the skills and responsibilities of sailing. Sessions are approximately 3 hours each for two sessions per week, for two weeks. 

While Traverse Area Community Sailing has a limited number of life jackets for use, students are encouraged to provide their own for better fit and regular use after the class. We will sail in the rain so clothing appropriate to the weather should be provided. We require closed toe shoes (tennis shoes, boat shoes, crocs, anything that encloses and protect the student feet). Towels, a water bottle, and snacks are often appropriate.


Your TACS Adult Lessons Include:

  • 12 hours of instruction on a centerboard boat on Boardman Lake.

  • Access to 420’s & Lasers on the Boardman Lake after successful completion of the centerboard course.
