2023 SAILING SEASON

January 12, 2023

Happy New Year! Days are slowly getting longer and spring will be here before we know it with long to do lists.   We expect classes to begin in Mid-May again this year. Dates are being finalized and you can expect to see them posted on our site shortly. 

This year we will be moving to our automated reservation system where students will be able to book classes online to reserve a date.  Once posted they will be first come first booked.  Of course you can always call or email with questions or help reserving a class or charter.

It is boat show season. Erie Islands Sailing School will not be present at the show this year with a booth, but that does not mean we are not busy preparing for another great summer.  

As a reminder, if you have attended a recent class with us please provide a review on Google or Tripadvisor.  Reviews are very helpful to get the word out about our awesome instructors, classes, and the Great Lake Erie that we love. Like us on Facebook for updates or check back here.

Fair Winds,

Tricia & Kent and all of our Instructors

Erie Islands Sailing School has partnered with Sea Bags as a sail recycling drop off location at Safe Harbor Sandusky Marina.  Help us reduce the impact in our landfills.  We were able to recycle over 500lbs of sails in 2022.  The drop box is located by the office/pool area. 

IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN TO SAIL. IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO LEARN A SKILL THAT WILL LAST A LIFETIME. IMAGINE THE FEELING OF FREEDOM AS YOU GLIDE THROUGH THE WATER - POWERED ONLY BY NATURE!

Erie Islands Sailing School

With our main location at Safe Harbor Sandusky in Sandusky Bay, Erie Islands Sailing School is the ideal place to begin your sailing dream. The protected waters of Sandusky Bay offer the novice sailor a great place to learn the basics. The proximity of Lake Erie and the island destinations of Kelleys, the Bass Islands, and Put-in-Bay offer fun and challenging sailing for those taking our Bareboat Chartering and Advanced Coastal Cruising classes. 

We look forward to sharing the world of sailing with you.
Our focus is on Sailing: Education, Safety, Fun.
