PROGRAMS FOR ALL AGES
At Tahoe Community Sailing we believe in the opportunity for everyone! From all ages to abilities, it is never too early or too late, Tahoe Community Sailing can offer something for everyone. From teamwork and leadership skills to learning water safety there is something for everyone at Tahoe Community Sailing. Our youth classes help build confidence on the water, while teaching teamwork. Advanced classes are open for all who accept the challenge. For adults it is our philosophy that at any age, anyone can enjoy boating. For the competitive, we offer weekly races to test the skills and abilities of our sailors. Our facilities give sailors from all walks of life and ability levels an opportunity to learn how fun it is to sail.
Intermediate classes are for those advanced students who have spent some time around and on boats.
