Pricing ranges for our courses from $500 to $1000 depending on your goals and desires, if you want private or combined lessons, and your previous experience. Our philosophy is to work with all of our students to ensure competence is gained rather than perform a one size fits all, factory training. In the world of sailing training, you certainly get what you pay for. Joe’s sailing school is competence oriented.
