The three-day course consists of an introductory classroom session, followed by two water days. After completing the classroom session, students will receive sailing instruction on a Sunfish sailboat, hands-on keelboat training, and get to sail with experienced NSA keelboat owners and their crews. Both days of sailing on the water will include brief periods of onshore demonstrations and classroom work.

The cost to attend is $250 per non-member student, and $195 for members. Life jackets, course materials, use of sailboats, and safety equipment are included in the fee. Graduates of the class interested in joining NSA will have their initiation fee waived and pay half-price on their first year of membership.
