Sailing Lessons

Getting started is easy!  There are many different resourses available to learn to sail, including local non-profit community programs and commercial sailing schools.  Most offer a course that leads to certification at the course completion.  If you’re serious about sailing and want to get up to speed as quickly as possible, a specialty sailing school may be just the ticket for your success! In addition, you may have the basics down but want to brush up on or learn about a particular aspect of sailing, like how to prepare for a cruise, or to learn what’s involved in racing. Sailing education is fun and enjoyable and can be done individually or with your family or small group.

Sail America, the U.S. sailing industry trade association, has several sailing schools in its membership. These schools are owned and operated by reputable business professionals who are committed to delivering a first-class educational experience for their students. For a list of these top sailing schools that belong to Sail America, see our list below.
