Private Lesson (2 hours): 

Lessons are always private which can be one-on-one, you and a significant other, or the entire family. This is your time and can be catered to whatever skills you want to work on. Or, if you are brand new to sailing, I will create a fun and educational agenda to fill the time we have.
