Learn to Sail Saranac Lake 

We will be sailing from either the newly renovated Saranac Lake Marina or from the Indian Carry state boat launch. Either way, the SAIL ADKs Learn to Sail program features our O’Day 23 small Cruiser, and Sunfish dinghy sailor. Camping on or around Saranac Lake? Sailing lessons are a great way to spice up those lazy days around the camp site. Lessons are offered in two hour blocks and we will customize the lesson schedule and duration to meet your time and budget requirements.  Learning to sail is a great family activity and the O’Day can take two adults and two kids or up to three adults. Lessons include a small amount of on-shore training and a lot of time on the water and at the helm. Based on your interest, and available time topics that can be built into your experience include:  

  • Boat Handling

  • Tacking & Jibing

  • Hoisting & Trimming Sails
