Excellence in Sailing Instruction

We strongly believe in developing fundamental sailing skills. To ensure unsurpassed instruction, Nationally recognized Certifications are available from each of our two Sailing Schools. We have a low Student/Instructor ratio. We only put two students on each boat (along with an instructor). This improves the learning curve and doesn’t waste your time by crowding the boat.

We are a comprehensive ASA Certification facility.

The Art of Sailing

Mastering the sport of sailing requires a knowledge of sailing techniques, safety procedures, and, most importantly, actual sailing experience. We are leaders in promoting safe, competent boating.

We are, and always have been, the Metroplex’s premier sailing school. Our curriculum has been developed over many years of experience in teaching and our program continues to set the standard. From time to time, you may notice other sailing schools attempting to emulate our program. Remember, at their best, they will only be as good as we were last year. If you are not willing to settle for second best, seek out the leader!

We specialize in individualized sailing instruction and insist on developing fundamental skills at each level of sailing before progressing to the next level. Our lead instructors are nationally acclaimed. Furthermore, they are experienced in the art of teaching sailing lessons.

Our specialized lesson format develops proper sailing techniques with carefully designed drills. These drills identify areas needing improvement. Quality lessons are very specialized – much more than just a group lesson for a small group.
