is SSA the preferred choice of sailing schools worldwide? We
are the preferred choice for novice through experienced sailors
worldwide because we specialize in individualized, custom training
tailored to the student's specialized needs and learning curve.
One obvious advantage to private instruction is that the instructor
is free to concentrate exclusively on one student or couple.
Both the lesson plan and its pace can be custom tailored to
the individual. For some students, particularly those with time
constraints or special learning needs, private instruction and
hands-on experience are the ideal way to learn to sail. In a
private lesson, the relationship between instructor and student
is analogous to that of doctor and patient. A doctor examines
a patient, makes a diagnosis, prescribes a course of treatment,
then monitors and adjusts the therapy as the patient responds.
Similarly, an instructor assesses a student's ability, maturity,
and learning style, and makes a diagnosis as to what deficiencies
need attention, prescribes and administers an appropriate lesson
plan. Private instruction is also affordable. Our rates for
private instruction carry a surcharge of 30% over group rates.
