It is October 2021 and things are exciting around Erie Islands Sailing School, Everyone knows that the 2021 sailing season was a good one. Our classes were filled at both our Sandusky and Cleveland locations. It has been ten seasons since the school was founded. During this time, I am pleased to say that over 600 sailors have been introduced to the sailing world in general and to the certifications offered through the American Sailing Association. Many thanks, of course, go to the knowledge and skills of our instructors.
It is now time for some changes. I am pleased to announce that the ownership of Erie Islands Sailing School is being transferred to Tricia and Kent Purvis. Tricia and Kent are lifelong boaters and natives of the Sandusky, OH area. They are looking forward to continuing the certification classes offered through the affiliation with the American Sailing Association and building on the successful foundation of the school. Stay tuned. More information will follow here and in future emails.
We will be offering the ASA 105, Coastal Navigation and Piloting, class after the fist of the year. Details on dates and locations will be announced soon. If you have an interest in this class using traditional navigation methods, please let us know.
Mark your calendar. The Cleveland Boat Show is back at the I-X Center January 13 – 17, 2022. We will be there and hope you will be as well.

Located at the Sandusky Harbor Marina 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. Although Sandusky Bay is the home port for the school, classes are also offered out of bases in Cleveland, OH.
We look forward to sharing the world of sailing with you.
Our focus is on Sailing: Education, Safety, Fun.
Learn to Sail. . . Live the Dream!
