Learn to Sail with Passion Yachts Sailing School!

We offer fully sanctioned ASA sailing classes to both beginners and advanced students. In fact, 40% of our students have no boating experience. The American Sailing Association (ASA) is the oldest, and in our opinion, the best sailing curriculum available. ASA credentials are recognized world wide and enable certified sailors to charter sailboats at major charter companies out in the world.

Passion Yachts teaches on Hunter sailboats with outboard/inboard power and tiller/wheel steering. Boat sizes range from 20 to 34 feet. See the complete Passion Yachts Fleet here. Passion Yachts will even teach students on their own boat if it is properly equipped. “Hands-on instruction” is paramount in Basic Sailing to Bareboat Cruising. We believe that students learn best when 60%-90% of the instruction is on the water. Our instruction is comprehensive, yet relaxed! We want sailors to have fun while they are learning.
