Half Day Introduction to Sailing

Half day Sail: Afternoons & Sunsets


Be part of the crew in Charleston Harbor on a comfortable Colgate 26. The Colgate is a great boat on which to learn the basics of sailing. It is both fast and stable. While aboard, you will participate in all aspects of sailing from hoisting the main and trimming the jib to handling the tiller and actually driving the boat.


No prior knowledge of sailing is needed to enjoy these half or full day sails. Our US Sailing Certified Instructors are calm, knowledgeable, and ready to share their passion for sailing with you. While at sea, you may participate in the sailing experience as much or as little as you like.


"Hi Ned. I just wanted you to know that we all loved our sailing trip with Captain Allen! The kids had a chance to help sail and we all enjoyed the sights of Charleston from the water. Peter learned a lot about sailing, too. It was definitely the highlight of our vacation -- even with the storm at the end. Thank you for making it all possible on such short notice. Happy Sailing!"
