Some students may learn the sailing lessons at a fast pace and others may learn on a slow pace. So depending on the level of knowledge that is required by each learner, cost per hour is fixed for learning sailing lesson.

The instruction manuals, processing of certification, salaries to instructors, administration expenses and management of sailing school are all some of the hidden costs which will be included in the sailing lesson prices. This is to ensure that effective and efficient management is made by the sailing school. Further the school must pay for the land, operating expenses and other fixed costs.
