An Island Classroom
Your “campus” is the San Juan Islands and your “classroom” is a beautiful cruising sailboat. We’ve been teaching students to sail for over 31 years and we’ve found that the best learning environment is on the water! With a limit of 4 students per class there’s plenty of helm time. Hands-on learning provides you with the skills you’ll need to enjoy sailing to the fullest.
Surrounded by the Cascade and Olympic Mountains, you’ll enjoy anchoring in idyllic coves, exploring the artist shops of quaint island towns, and watching bald eagles soar overhead while porpoises play in your wake. These are all part of the cruisers’ paradise you’ll experience when you learn to sail at San Juan Sailing School. Our location in Bellingham Bay is quickly becoming the Northwest’s most popular sailing center with the second largest pleasure craft marina in Washington and the most consistent winds in the area. The unspoiled, forested San Juan Islands are just a “bay sail away!”
