World-Class Training

All US based SailTime instructors are licensed US Coast Guard captains and ASA-certified 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.

Why Certify?



Learning to sail based on a logically sequenced curriculum will help you understand “why” you are doing something, not just “how”.

Certifications are required by SailTime and other charter companies before they will allow you to take the boats.

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!
