Our sailing school specializes in private sailing classes. Private sailing classes mean that you and your spouse, friends or family will be the only students in your class and living aboard your yacht. Our class size is usually two - often a couple, but we also teach friends and family members who want to share the experience.
When family members or friends are training together, and require it, we will increase the class size. If you anticipate a class size greater than two, please call or send us an email so that we may discuss how to customize your class. We also allow ride-alongs.
All of our classes are live-aboard - all of our boats have air conditioning. We encourage our students to board the night before class begins - at no additional cost. To see our boats, please click here.
Returning students always receive a 10% "Welcome Back" discount.
Note: When choosing a sailing school, please be sure to compare our prices to other schools' Private prices.

We require a 50% deposit to reserve your class.
Please note that deposits are used to secure commitment, and thus are not refundable. We certainly recognize that events can change even the most well intentioned plans. We are happy to re-schedule or transfer the deposit to another class, captained charter, or bareboat charter (if applicable) or to other sailors. If we need to cancel your class due to events beyond our control (weather, illness, equipment failure), we will completely refund your deposit deducting for products or services already provided. This refund is limited to the actual fees collected from you by ECY.
