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.
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.
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!
Why Be Sailing Certified?
Learning to sail safely and in a professional and supportive environment will build your skills and confidence quickly, and it will keep it fun!
Learning to sail based on a logically sequenced curriculum will help you understand “why” you are doing something, not just “how.”
SailTime and other charter companies require certifications before they will allow you to take the boats.
