Accelerate Skills Development

Experiential Education

By limiting sailing classes to a maximum of two students, the Newport Beach Sailing School students have the unique opportunity to more time at the helm. We train you on the yacht on which you are a member, to ensure that you become comfortable with the intimate workings of your particular vessel. Regardless of the size boat you sail or level of ASA training you require, we will provide you with “tips and tricks” that go above and beyond the ASA course material.
All of our instructor-captains are USCG-licensed and ASA-certified.
SailTime supports the national recreational boating education standards as recognized by the United States Coast Guard.
