He has been an instructor and coach for Widgeon and Optimist Sailors in recent summers. His goal is to create a fun and safe environment for all sailors to learn in. When Sam is not on the water, he enjoys fishing and reading. In the fall, he will be returning for his second year at the University of Virginia.



** Updates on inclement weather will be communicated via Instagram, Facebook, and text messages. **

As you all know, the island delivers its fair share of weather conditions in the form of fog, too much wind, too little wind, high seas, and more. The program office and instructors check conditions daily and make decisions to keep our participants safe.

  1. In the event we have to cancel a private lesson due to inclement weather, we will make every effort to reschedule at a mutually convenient time. 
  2. If we deem the morning unsafe for our kid’s sailing program, we will have a “dry deck” lesson as an alternative. In these sessions, children will learn boating safety skills, knot tying, weather patterns, rigging, and more. Dry deck sessions may be conducted on the beach, on the float, or at the center. 

Cancellation/Refund Policy

Refunds are considered on a case-by-case basis. Unused payments can be applied to another program or treated as a donation to the CCC.
