Sailing Charlotte Harbor & The Gulf — your boat is ready when you are

SailTime Southwest Florida

Enjoy Sailing in Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico! 


Welcome to SailTime Southwest Florida

Hello, we are Dave and Leesa Thompson, Base Managers of the new SailTime Southwest Florida.  We are ready to help you get out sailing in Charlotte Harbor, and on the Gulf waters of Florida!   Our sailing life started over 10 years ago, when we discovered SailTime while living in Chicago.  During those years we have sailed thousands of miles, including several week-long cruises across Lake Michigan.  SailTime has helped us become ASA certified sailors, and gave us an easy way to get the most enjoyment out of sailing.

Last summer we opened our SailTime Southwest Florida site here at the Burnt Store Marina in Punta Gorda.  We will help teach you to sail, so that you can spend time with your friends and family on the Gulf waters or in the serenity of Charlotte Harbor.  Get to know friends that share your passion for sailing, and find new sailing skills along the way.  We have come to live in Florida so that we can sail all year.  Burnt Store Marina is our new home port and we think it’s one of the best spots on the Gulf to sail.

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 warm Gulf waters.  SailTime Southwest Florida offers 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.  The upkeep of your boat is done for you, so that you can board a boat that is always ready to go and in pristine condition.  Come experience our new yachts, easy online scheduling, and attention to customer service.  We would love to have you as a SailTime  member and we can  teach you the skills you need to handle your new yacht.
