Regatta Point Adults Program
Regatta Point Community Sailing, located on Lake Quinsigamond in the State Park, offers sailing and learning programs for Adults. Teaching people how to sail and to enjoy being out on the water is the prime goal of Regatta Point Community Sailing. RPCS uses an all inclusive membership approach. One flat fee covers all group lessons, boat usage, guest privileges with proper certification, and kayaks. Sorry, no motorboats.
New Sailors take one of the beginner sailing lessons. They are taught basic sailing skills by a staff of highly qualified instructors. The classes include on-the-water and on-shore training. Be prepared to set sail on the first day. Topics include: rigging, knots, sailing theory, and boating safety. Sailors earn their solo rating after their third class which allows them to practice on their own in the safe boating area. There is always staff on hand to answer any questions or to offer guidance. After the final class, sailors can earn their Helmsman rating by demonstrating a prophecy in safe boating in all points of sail. Helmsmen are then encouraged to try one of the many advanced courses and are given special privileges of expanded sailing area and guest privileges.
Experienced Sailors (helmsman certification or equivalent) can enroll in any of our advanced classes. The topics of the classes include high performance sailing and cruising.
Safety at Regatta Point Community Sailing is important. While many of our staff members are life guard certified and we supply life jackets, participants must be able to swim 75 yards and tread water for 3 minutes. We have an excellent safety record. Trained staff members constantly supervise the sailing area and we have safety launches with radios ready to assist anyone in need.
