My first time sailing was an outstanding experience primarily bc I took lessons from an extremely knowledgeable, engaging, and experienced instructor, Bruce Hillyer.
Sailing is fun, but it also demands respect and attention to detail. Bruce teaches someone with absolutely no sailing experience, like myself, to have fun and enjoy the many wonderful joys that come with sailing, while at the same time remain focussed, alert, and trained on how to properly operate a sailboat from start to finish.
As a newbie, you want someone like Bruce, who is patient while coaching you, and you also need his directness about getting the basics down to sailing. Again, sailing is fun, but the safety of yourself, your boat, others boats and your crew is of utmost importance.
Bruce and the rest of the staff at Chicago Sailing will ensure you walk away feeling confident you can operate a sailboat on your own in no time! Sign up early, you won’t regret it!
