HMS & HHS Sailing Certification!

A Sailing Certification Course for Hoboken Middle and High School Students!
Posted on 01/04/2021
Setting SailIt's with great enthusiasm that I announce Hoboken School District's first Youth US Sailing Keelboat Sailing Certification Course with Hoboken Sailing Club! This spectacular opportunity is open to all Hoboken High School and Hoboken Middle School Students.


We will be offering 2 Keelboat Sailing Certification sessions. If your child is interested in learning to sail and holding a 1 year US Sailing Membership please enroll now! Only sign up for one session as this is the same course offered twice. By running the same program twice we will have the opportunity to certify and transform 36 students into sailors by the start of summer 2021!

*Students must participate in the Learn to Swim Course PRIOR to the sailing certification if they don't know how to swim.*
