Sailing Lessons


Strictly Sail Inc. offers sailing lessons once a month from May through September. This safe introduction to sailing is designed for the first time sailor.  Each class consists of a classroom session on a Wednesday evening as well as an on-the-water sailing session on either a Saturday or Sunday.  Our teaching boat is a Montego 25, cabin-class keel boat, similar to the type one might buy as their first boat.  Under the guidance and supervision of our veteran instructors, each student is given the opportunity to steer the boat and trim the sails.  Your first time at the tiller is an experience you will never forget.

Our instructor, Daryl Clark, is a seasoned sailor who began his sailing experience on cruise excursions to the local southwest Ohio and Indiana lakes with his dad and brother. Sailing has been one of his passions since his high school days many years ago. During his college years, he started racing with the Miami University Sailing Club. While at Miami of Ohio, he also began teaching sailing. Daryl, a member of the US Sailing Association, enjoys sharing his enthusiasm for sailing with students and fellow sailors. We are proud to have him on the crew at Strictly Sail, Inc.

The classroom ‘sailing school’ session is approximately three hours and is held at Strictly Sail in Blue Ash, Ohio, a suburb of Cincinnati. This will cover instruction on sailing theory, safety, terminology and rigging. The on-the-water class will be held at Brookville Lake in Indiana and will also last about three hours. This second session will be hands-on with the instructor, Daryl, on board.
