For safety reason, and in order to give each sailor ample time at the helm, we are limiting this sail to SLV MEMBERS ONLY. If you have not paid your annual membership dues, you will not be able to attend the training sail. Because this is an intructional sail,the rate for the training sail is $50 for members, limited to 6 SLV members.

This sail is for those who wish to learn all aspects of handling a sail boat. In order to give each sailor an ample opportunity to take the helm, the sail is limited to six sailors, and is open to SLV members only. No guests on this sail. You may pay at a regular Wednesday meeting, or via PayPal at the Sail-la-Vie website. Your place on the boat cannot be confirmed until payment has been confirmed. Website: ml (

REGULAR SAILS – Every Saturday SLV skippers offer afternoon sails (11:30 AM- 6:00 PM) providing there are enough interested SLV members and their guests. Training sails are the 4th Saturday of each month.
