Attentive passengers learn the basics of keelboat sailing from experienced, American Sailing Association-certified instructors, including Head Captain James Royer and Zac Sunderland, the youngest American to sail around the world solo. Students receive a certificate of completion and can take the ASA 101 class at a discounted rate within 90 days of their introductory lesson.

Pacific Sailing

Instructors at Pacific Sailing's ASA-certified sailing school teach a variety of students the basics of navigating coastal waters and instruct students in specialized types of sailing or in the students' greatest areas of interest. Captains lead group and private lessons that cover basic keelboat sailing, basic coastal cruising, bareboat chartering, and coastal navigation—providing the skills necessary to unfurl and tie a sail or navigate using electronics, the light of the stars, and directions from a well-traveled seagull. The instructors conduct their lessons and lead skippered day sails, sunset sails, and overnight trips at the helm of Colgate, Hunter, Catalina, Irwin, and Beneteau sailboats.

Customer Reviews

My husband and I really enjoyed our sailing lessons! They put us in a larger boat so I wouldn't feel skittish (deep water fear) and it was great. Our instructor was very knowledgeable giving us lessons. We are hoping to take more lessons with them during the summer. We both recommend that everyone try this unique experience with Pacific sailing! Susan and Donald Echlin
