Campus Recreation offers Several different types of sailing lessons as a part of our Waterfront programming.

Our Start Sailing Right program is a perfect first step. In this course you will learn the basics of sailing on our recreation Flying Junior dinghy fleet.  In a group setting you will learn the skills necessary to safely sail a small boat in protected waters, near shore, in Tampa Bay. Skills include knot tying, seamanship, sail theory, emergency procedures, boat handling, and sail trim.

Keelboat Sailing is offered for sailors looking to take their skills to the next level on one of our larger vessels.  New this semester we are offering two different keelboating classes.  The first will be a start keelboating right course where no experience is required.  Our second offering you will build upon the skills learned in Start Sailing Right on one of our 24 foot keelboats. Students will learn how to maneuver our keelboats under power and sail, working as a team with your classmates you will learn more advanced sail trim, boat handling, radio usage,emergency procedures and brush up on your knots.  Instructors will empower you to safely challenge your limits and build your communication and teamwork skills.

With offerings throughout the semester there has never been a better time to learn a new skill, fulfill a dream, or enjoy quality time on the water.  Contact the Campus Recreation Hotline at 727-873-4589 for more information about Sailing Lessons at USFSP!
