Presented by J World Annapolis
Have you always wanted to try sailing, but didn’t know where to start? Are you looking for a low cost and minimal commitment way to get on the water and experience sailing? Even if you have sailing experience, the J World First Sail is a great way to grow your knowledge and hone your skills. It’s only $99 and it’s the easiest way to go sailing in Annapolis.
How Does it Work?
Call J World Annapolis at (410) 280-2040 to purchase a First Sail certificate for $99, and we’ll email you a beautiful certificate. During our First Sail season (May 1 to November 1), call to schedule either a weeknight or weekend day session and join us in Annapolis for a custom tailored sailing experience. It’s that easy!
What will the on-the-water experience be like?
We take sailing education seriously. This three-hour session is a condensed version of our award-winning education program. Your sailor will really be sailing, not just “riding along.” From the moment they leave the dock, the tiller and sheets will be in their hands, with top-flight coaching staff quietly teaching and encouraging each student. We keep the class size small (a limit of four students per boat) so everyone is engaged in steering, trimming sails, learning right-of-way rules, tacking, gybing and more.
We want everyone to have the best three-hour sailing experience possible, so we will be offering both weeknight and weekend options. Make a day of it exploring Annapolis, or kick off date night in the most special way. They might sail by some Wednesday or Thursday night racing out on the Bay, or sail around the Annapolis harbor on a busy Saturday and then enjoy an afternoon exploring the sights, sounds and all that Annapolis has to offer. If conditions are right, we might even be able to sneak a spinnaker up!
Each session will cruise to wherever the wind is best, but we hope to give everyone a tour of Annapolis Harbor and peek out into the Bay. Sights include the Bay Bridge, the Naval Academy, Ego Alley YP Boats, crab pots and more!
