Regretfully, due to Covid-19 restrictions, Sandy Point Sailing Association will not be offering sailing lessons in the 2020 season. Our board, instructors, and volunteers are very disappointed that the season will not go forward. If you have already registered and paid for sailing lessons, we will reach out to you with information on refunds. Our instructors are putting together an interactive remote class so our sailors can brush up on their skills even though we can’t get them out on the water. Please keep an eye on our Facebook page for more information and we’ll also send out an email blast shortly with more details. Our sailing program will be back in 2021 and we look forward to seeing you then.
