Learn to Sail!
The Lake Manawa Sailing School offers a relaxed, flexible approach tailored to meet our student’s needs. Our goal is for you to have a safe, fun-filled experience as you learn to sail. Our courses are designed to teach you the basic skills, knowledge and confidence required for all types of sailing. Whether your goal is to enjoy recreational sailing with family and friends, or to race competitively, we can provide the foundation for satisfying lifelong
experiences on the water.
Youth Sailing (ages 12 and over)
We offer beginning and advanced youth group classes which meet for 4-consecutive Saturdays from 9:00 am to noon. The first session begins with the first Saturday in June and the second session starts with the first Saturday after the July 4th weekend. Beginning Sailing classes provide basic sailing instruction on 14-ft, single-sail Sunfish dinghies. We also offer an advanced class for more experienced sailors on 2-sail centerboard sloops, which explore more advanced sailing techniques. Students must know how to swim at least 50 yards and be able to float on their back without the assistance of a flotation device. A life preserver (which must be worn at all times while on the water) will be provided for the courses. The cost is $50 per student, which includes a US Sailing instruction manual and a Junior membership to the Lake Manawa Sailing Club, which entitles the student to use the Club’s boats outside of the course instruction periods. To enroll in any of the youth sailing group classes, please complete the attached application forms (4 documents) below and return to Randy Greer, 1808 N 132nd Avenue Circle, Omaha, NE 68154.
