Imagine the freedom of setting sail from the Outer Banks with the wind at your back. You could go anywhere, but you’ll go nowhere fast without sailing lessons to help you get started. The experienced staff at Kitty Hawk Watersports can teach you the basics in one of our Hobie Cat sailboats — and once you’re hooked you can rent your own vessel right here.

Outer Banks Sailing Lessons

Beginner Sailing Lessons

Sailing is a wonderful blend of serenity and thrills, and many beginners are hooked after just one lesson. Here are some of the details about the course:

  • Lessons last two hours.
  • 2 students maximum, per class.
  • Learn basic wind theory.
  • Learn to travel the different points of sale.

Anchors Aweigh in the Outer Banks

Our skilled instructors start with the basics of wind theory, the most fundamental element of learning to sail. You’ll spend time at the tiller during your sailing lesson on Roanoke Sound, and we’ll give you plenty of practice steering, tacking, and jibing too. (Don’t worry, we’ll also teach you what these terms mean.)

Our beginner sailing lessons supply all the knowledge you need to pilot one of our rental sailboats with confidence.

More Fun in the Water

In addition to sailing lessons, our watersports curriculum also includes stand-up paddleboarding lessons. And if you just need the equipment, we have lots of rentals to choose from too. Whether you’d like a sailboat or a stand-up paddleboard, a kayak or a jet ski, Kitty Hawk Watersports is your destination for fun on the Outer Banks. We also offer parasailing, guided tours, and jet ski service. Contact us today at (252) 441-2756 and start planning your next trip to the welcoming waters near Nags Head and Kitty Hawk.
