What a wonderful experience! It felt great to get the family out of the house, especially with the COVID-19 shutdowns. I was a bit worried that my kids ( 11 and 13 years old) would be overwhelmed with the two day course...they absolutely loved the experience. After our course finished we actually signed them up for an additional kids sailing class with 2 of their friends. Thx Captain Joe!

This was the highlight of our trip! Megan was super helpful, from answering questions before we arrived to suggesting things to do after we left. Jim was amazing with my son and patiently taught us how to maneuver a sailboat. Highly recommend!!!

About Afterguard Sailing Academy

Afterguard Sailing Academy's Intro to Sailing courses (90-minute and 2-day BK1) are a great way to get a taste of the passion held by so many people across the world. Guests can sample life at sea during the 90-minute journey over the estuary. If it suits their interests, they can get more in-depth training with the BK1 program, which teaches knots, sailboat parts, sail trim, steering, and proper crewing techniques over the course of two days.

The fully accredited ASA academy's team of instructors also teach comprehensive American Sailing Association certification courses, which aim to transition ordinary passengers to reach their sailing goals and become crew members and skippers for more independent sailing adventures of all types. As students progress, instructors teach more advanced lessons, such as bay basics and ocean sailing. Aside from these lessons, the captains also run a nonprofit sailing academy for youth.
