Willow Bank offers four adult learn-to-sail sessions during the summer. The courses cover the basics including rigging, launching, points of sail, tacking, gybing, landing and storing the boat. The course is hands-on and will be conducted primarily on the water. No prior sailing experience is required.

- Each participant is required to bring a properly sized U.S. Coast Guard approved Type III personal flotation device (i.e. lifejacket).
- Sailors should be prepared to get wet if the winds are strong. A windbreaker or rain jacket will improve comfort on cool windy days, especially early in the summer when the lake is still cold.
