SailTime has the largest network of professional sailing schools in the world. With 40 schools certifying students to the American Sailing Association (ASA), US Sailing, and the Royal Yachting Association (RYA) standards, we are able to take the best techniques and materials from each school and share them with you. So when you choose a SailTime sailing school, you are getting access to knowledge and best practices from around the world.
All US based SailTime instructors are licensed US Coast Guard captains and certified ASA instructors. They go through a rigorous training and testing process to reach that level, and are further vetted as great teachers. We only hire the best. Our schools and instructors are routinely recognized as “School of the Year” and “Instructor of the Year” by the American Sailing Association.
At a SailTime sailing school, you can be assured that you will be learning on the highest quality yachts available. Safe, clean, and comfortable, your experience on the water will be an enjoyable one. In addition, you’ll be learning to use the latest electronics and safety equipment on our modern Hunter and Beneteau sailboats.
Our members and students are busy people who want to get the most out of their time on the water, so our smaller class sizes facilitate a more productive learning environment. You will get plenty of time at the helm, cranking the winches, and getting your questions answered. With an emphasis on seamanship, boat systems, and cruising, you will soon be ready to head out on your own!
