Sailing School & Rentals
Arey’s Pond Sailing School has been teaching sailing on Pleasant Bay since 1964. We teach all aspects of sailing, from the fundamentals to the advanced skills needed for racing, on our 14’ and 16’ Arey’s Pond Catboats. Catboats are the traditional sailboats of Cape Cod. They’re safe and stable, making them perfect for sailors of all ages. All of our experienced instructors are certified by US Sailing.
