Designed over 50 years ago, the Rhodes 19 is an exciting, one-design sailboat that offers both great family day sailing and competitive racing.  Comfortable and safe, the Rhodes 19 is a great learning platform.

All levels welcome, but geared toward Beginner to Intermediate

You learn all the basics of sailing:  wind direction, tying knots, sail trim, steering, bailing water out of the boat, rigging, de-rigging, teamwork, safety etc.  The Course introduces the student to the sport of sailing, starting from the very basics.

More advanced sailors learn anchoring, Man Over Board, sail controls, spinnaker, reefing, wind shifts, Rules of the Road and more.

  • This program is a graduated program. We recommend that each sailor go through the designed progression of the program, for each class of boat.  Everyone is different and our instructors will assess your skill and comfort with the level at which you are sailing.  Instructors may recommend that some students may need to repeat one of the classes if they have not successfully mastered each skill required in that class.
  • Our program strives to create a fun and safe environment where people can learn and come to love the sport of sailing.  We emphasize the importance of teamwork, respect, and safety in daily lessons.  Our number one goal is to pass on our passion for the sport to the next generation of St. Croix Sailors.
