Charleston Sailing School

"I am a citizen of the most beautiful nation on earth. A nation whose laws are harsh, yet simple, a nation that never cheats, which is immense without borders. In this limitless nation of wind, light, and peace, there is no ruler besides the sea."

Charleston Sailing School is an American Sailing Association certified training facility. We offer ASA courses in Basic Keelboating, Coastal Cruising, Bareboat Chartering, and Coastal Navigation. Other services include bareboat rentals, private charters/instruction, and yacht deliveries.

Charleston Sailing School specializes in creating unique yachting adventures. From our location downtown at the Charleston City Marina we offer a fleet of sail and power yachts available for Sailing Lessons, Private Yacht Charters, and Bareboat Charters. Have you ever dreamed of owning your own yacht? Our team of brokerage professionals can guide you through the search, purchase, and maintenance processes when you decide to pursue the yacht of your dreams. Inquire about your options today!

Mission: We promote the sport of sailing by teaching our students how to "Sail with Confidence"
