Welcome to the Chebeague Island Sailing School

For the 2016 season, we’re offering classes in three sessions. 

  • Session 1 – July 5-15
  • Session 2 – July 18-29
  • Session 3 – August 1-12

Boating basics is offered for the first week of each session. All other classes are per session.

Please place one order per student being registered.

About us: We want each student to spend as much time as possible on the water practicing the skills that we discuss on land and learn from the textbook. And, we want to meet each boater “where they are” – as a small program we can devote lots of time to each student.

For all levels we work with the textbook “Start Sailing Right” from US Sailing. In the first year that a student participates in any of the three levels they should purchase a copy of the book . Advanced students will also use material from “The Racer’s Handbook.”

Boats: We have 4 JY15’s, small keelboats, an Opti, and 2 420s. The fleet is in great shape!

Students and instructors appreciate our Seitech dollies which makes launch easier and extends time on the water.

Classes: Our 2016 season runs from July 5 through August 12. We offer something for all skill levels and ages. Our Basic Boating class is open to 8 & 9 years olds for some strange reason. Classes meet regardless of the weather.  If it’s too rough or rainy to be on the water we’ll have plenty of text to cover.
