Learn to Sail

Learn the basics of sailing aboard a 14 sailboat for 1 or 2 persons for 2 to 3 hours, with an instructor on board.

You will be either steering the boat or adjusting the sails under their guidance, this will be give you “hands-on” learning experience while out on the water. 
Given favourable wind conditions, you will learn enough during your lesson to allow you to rent one of our sailboats in light winds.  After your lesson, armed with positive feedback from your instructor and your newly earned confidence, why not come back with a friend and impress them with your new set of skills?  We recommend renting for one hour periods to start.  This will ensure that the winds do not get too high for your level.
See why this approach to learning to sail has been so popular at Ahoy Rentals:  
Sailing instruction can take place Monday to Friday from 4-6, and during weekends. As the summer progresses, lessons will become more available. 
One-on-one learning
The instructor will give you 2 to 3 hours of his/her full attention to monitor your 
progress, explain the concept of sailing and how the boat works, and answer 
any of your questions, perhaps even throwing in a bit of history of Kingston.
Learn the basics of sailing in 2 to 2.5 hours.  See our reservation page for lesson times.
A written introduction to sailing is provided free of charge.  Download the PDF
