- Whether you are an avid sailor who knows all the sailing lingo or someone who enjoys spending time on a boat like myself Sail Montauk
offers a one of a kind experience. I had the opportunity to have a private lesson with Captain Darius Ali where I learned some sailing terminology along with how to sail the boat.
I was lucky enough to spend one of the hottest days of summer on one of Sail Montauk's fleet of Catalina 22s, which is the perfect time to be sailing on the waters of Montauk. With Sail Montauk you decide how interactive you want the experience to be. They offer four packages for private charters, including a taste of sailing where for two hours you help hoist the sails and then have to opportunity to steer the boat. The next two options are a variation of the taste of sailing option. The swim package is three hours and adds the opportunity to take a dip in the water while the sunset sail is two hours and like the taste of sailing how much sailing you want to do is up to you. Who wouldn't want to spend their sunset relaxing on a Catalina 22 with a bottle of wine and friends. The final option is a three hour tandem sailing perfect for larger groups who want to sail next to each other.
Sail Montauk gives avid sailors with experience the opportunity to bareboat charter for half or full day rentals and for those who are serious about learning how to sail take private intro to sailing class where you learn the basics of sailing.
To promote sailing on the East End, Sail Montauk created The Montauk Sailing Club for both boat owners and non-boat owners. The Montauk Sailing Club holds sail meet-ups and will be holding one Sunday August 5 at 3 p.m. at South Lake in Montauk. Club members enjoy discounts on lessons, and bareboat rentals from Sail Montauk.
For those of you who can't get enough of sailing, Sail Montauk also offers sailing vacations where you can relax on 40 to 50 foot yachts fully equipped with luxury amenities while island hopping in the British Virgin Islands during the winter.
Whether you choose to sail the boat or just relax and enjoy the weather, it is just you, your guests and the captain on the sail boat making it a memorable one of a kind experience.
