Learn to Sail with US Sailing

Part of US Sailing's vision is to introduce as many people as possible to this great sport. But we want to make sure you're learning in a safe, fun, high-quality environment...because if you're a well-trained, competent sailor you'll love sailing as much as we do!

Out on the water, sailing can be different things to different people. It can be exciting, invigorating, relaxing or challenging. And getting started is easy!

 

Learning to sail is part dream, part great instruction, and part hands-on experience. 

At US Sailing, all of these come together in our Keelboat Certification System. This Learn to Sail program guides you through seven levels of courses where you will accumulate skills and experience with each certification.

You will record your progress in your US Sailing Official Logbook, documenting all course completions, certifications and on-the-water experience.

At the culmination of each course, you will receive a certification sticker from your school to affix in your logbook. Your Official Logbook will serve as your passport for renting and chartering boats and for continuing your sailing education at accredited US Sailing schools.

As you complete each level, your certification will also be submitted to the US Sailing database by where chartering companies and other sailing schools across the country will be able to verify your readiness to sail.
