Cape Sail : 2017 Rates

Captained Sailing Charters
Cape Cod Sailing lessons aboard the Sabatical Three-hour trips are the most popular and cost $110 per person. Six-hour trips are $195 per person; there is a two-person minimum and six-person maximum. Couples who desire privacy for that special occasion are asked to pay for three and then we will not book any other individuals for that trip. Children under 12 years $20 off. These trips can be arranged for anytime of day or night, sunset, moonlight, etc. Other durations by arrangement. Charters longer than three hours are only done as private charters. I recommend two-hour trips for groups with young children ($85 per adult/$65 per child). Six-person charters are discounted from $660 to $575 for the three-hour trip. Other durations discounted 10% for six people.

Overnight sailing charters are $1750 for one or two persons and $350 for each additional person. Docking costs are additional, see below.

Sailing Lessons
Day Sailer:
Cost for one person is $95 per hour: additional persons at $55 per hour. For example, a couple learns to sail for $300 per two-hour lesson: $900 for two persons to complete the six-hour course.

Southern Cross:
Cost on 35' Southern Cross or your boat is $120 per hour. Additional persons at $60 per hour.

Overnight Lessons:
Recommended for those with some experience who are considering cruising their own boat or doing a bare boat charter. Typically this is a Nantucket trip which involves about six hours of sailing instruction each day. Cost is $2000 for one or two sailors and includes navigation, chartwork, piloting, GPS, radar, and more. Three days and two nights (usually Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard) are priced at $3000. Other durations are available - create your own sailing school vacation.
