Sailing Programs

Grande Maumelle Sailing Club is focused on providing educational opportunities for adults and kids, both for members and non-members.  Our goal is to give everyone interested in sailing the chance to improve their sailing skills so they can enjoy this wonderful sport for a lifetime.   Browse our programs below for more information, or contact us to find out how to get started.

Adult Learn to Sail

This class is intended to be either an introduction to sailing, or a skill building opportunity for family, friends, and crew of existing skippers. This is not a certification course. We reserve about half of the class entries for current club members and crew, or people who have an interest in joining us in the future! The goal of GMSC’s Adult Learn to Sail class is to teach performance sailing techniques that will provide students the knowledge and confidence they need to crew on others’ sailboats and work towards skippering their own.   GMSC offers a weekend adult sailing class twice per year in the spring and fall.  It’s a beginning sailing class that includes both classroom and on-the-water instruction.  The class is taught on keelboats and Flying Scots.
