Accredited Schooll logoTaking lessons from a US Sailing school will prepare you to meet your goals, regardless if you're just starting out or have dreams of cruising offshore.

As the National Governing Body for Sailing in the US, US Sailing does not extend accreditation lightly. All US Sailing Accredited Schools undergo a full evaluation to ensure that they meet the high standards of US Sailing.

While the level of education, and skills learned, are consistent across the Network, schools offer a variety of scheduling opportunities to meet your needs so please be sure to connect with schools in your area directly for pricing and availability.

All the schools in our network offer Basic Keelboat, but many offer higher level US Sailing courses as well.
