Modern Sailors Celebrate Summer Sailstice

June 19 was Summer Sailstice, an annual international celebration of sailing and the summer solstice. At Modern Sailing, we celebrate sailing every day! On Saturday, June 19, every boat in the fleet was booked and we estimate that over a hundred members, students, and guests got out on the water. 

With Summer Sailstice and the lifting of state COVID-19 restrictions, we also brought back our Après Sails social mixers. Expect to see an Après Sail in our outdoor canvas lounge every Saturday and Sunday 3:30 - 5:00 PM. We serve complimentary wine, beer, beverages, and snacks while you relax and enjoy swapping sailing stories with your friends at Modern Sailing.

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.

    We just took our ASA 106 at a school in Rhode Island as we prepare for 6 months of cruising in the Caribbean. The class was great, but more than anything it made us really appreciate the quality of teaching and rigor at Modern Sailing. Even though we were the newest to sailing, the group seemed to think that we had the best fundamentals. We felt very well prepared and we see why Modern Sailing has the reputation it does.

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.
