We teach and certify our students to American Sailing
Nockamixon Sailing School is an American Sailing Association affiliated sailing school. We teach and certify our students to ASA standards, and offer beginning and intermediate level sailing classes. Take fun and informative sailing lessons on Lake Nockamixon and then continue on to take the entire series of ASA sailing classes for inland, near coastal, and ocean waters, from beginner to advanced level classes at Delmarva Sailing School on the Chesapeake Bay, or at Virgin Islands Sailing Academy in the Virgin Islands.
All of our instructors are ASA certified sailing instructors and have their US Coast Guard captain’s license, ensuring the finest instruction available.
Nockamixon Sailing School sailing classes are all taught on the water. Class size is kept small and is typically 3-4 students. Classes are available to fit almost anyone's schedule.
Why not learn to handle a 20-30 foot sailboat in a safe and fun environment on Lake Nockamixon, and then learn to sail a 30-50 foot sailboat on the Chesapeake Bay or in the Virgin Islands. Take the entire series and get certified to bareboat charter in destinations all over the world, or learn to sail across an ocean. Why not start close to home without having to spend money and time on travel.
After students learn to sail we also offer a unique “Practice Sailing Program” that allows students to come back to refresh what they have learned, or to gain additional practice and confidence before chartering or purchasing their own sailboat.
By choosing Nockamixon Sailing School for your sailing education you can realize your dream of learning to sail. Our alumni charter sailboats in destinations all over the world, and many have purchased their own sailboat.
