Want The Best Metro Atlanta Sailing Lessons?

Fact #1: We have the Best-Qualified Sailing Instructors!

Your sailing classes / certifications are taught by our experienced Sailing Instructors who are U.S. Coast Guard licensed Captains and have been certified to teach Sailing by the American Sailing Association. We are one of the few sailing schools in the country qualified to teach ALL ASA Advanced Sailing Classes including 105 Coastal Navigation, 106 Advanced Coastal Cruising, 107 Celestial Navigation, 108 Offshore Passagemaking, and 114 Cruising Catamaran. There is no substitute for experience.

Fact #2: Our sailing classes have the Best Student to Instructor Ratio!

We put no more than 3 students per sailboat with 1 sailing instructor. Many sailing classes will have only 2 students per sailboat. This allows for one-on-one with the sailing instructor and no time sitting around a cramped cockpit watching others sail the boat! We also utilize a fleet of different boats to give students “real time” experience moving between a variety of sailboat designs and brands.

Fact #3: Our sailing lessons use experiential “On the Sailboat” training!

We have found that “On the Sailboat” training is far more effective than sitting in a classroom discussing sailing theory. The best way to learn sailing is practical application with your hands on the tiller of the sailboat under the guidance of our sailing instructors. All sailing instruction is done dockside and on the sailboats. The Result? Certification can be accomplished in a specified amount of course time instead of endless classes awaiting certification.

Fact #4: We are the only Lake Lanier sailing school located on a major resort!

Why spend your sailing time and dollars at an ordinary marina when you can enjoy the luxury of Lanier Islands complete with hotels, dining, water park, golf and much more. Bring the whole family if you like.

Let them play while you take the helm and Learn to Sail!
