Welcome to SailTime Southwest Florida

Hello, we are Dave and Leesa Thompson, Base Managers of SailTime Southwest Florida.  We are ready to help you go sailing in Charlotte Harbor, and on the Gulf waters of Florida!   Our sailing life started over 12 years ago, when we found SailTime while living in Chicago.  During those years we have sailed thousands of miles, including several week-long cruises across Lake Michigan.  Now that we’re in Southwest Florida, we enjoy year-round sailing, and exploring the local islands and harbors. SailTime helped us become ASA certified sailors, and gave us an easy way to get the most enjoyment out of sailing.

In 2015 we opened our SailTime Southwest Florida site here at the Burnt Store Marina in Punta Gorda.  Our ASA sailing school will help you learn to sail or improve your sailing skills, so you can spend time with your friends on the Gulf waters or in the serenity of Charlotte Harbor.  Burnt Store Marina is centrally located near Ft. Myers, Port Charlotte, and Cape Coral, and is one of the best sailing spots on the Gulf coast.

SailTime Southwest Florida has new boats that are safe, clean, and easy to sail.  Imagine yourself at the helm of one our boats sailing south to Sanibel Island, or anchored while watching the sunset over the tropical waters.  SailTime Southwest Florida gives you the ability to spend time on the water with friends and family in a new yacht, with easy scheduling, and without the cost and hassle of ownership.  We do the upkeep of your sailboat, so your boat is always ready to go and in pristine condition.  We would love to have you as a SailTime  member and teach you the sailing skills to handle your new yacht.

Use the tabs at the top of the page to learn more about SailTime Southwest Florida.  Or simply use the Request Info button and we will show you why SailTime is the smart and easy way to sail.
