My girlfriends and I were having a lovely girl's weekend in Annapolis and the highlight of our trip was a sunset sailing cruise that we went on with Annapolis Sailing School. We had two guides take us out on a very lovely, brand new sailboat. We sat back and relaxed with some wine and snacks. Our two guides, Fred and... More

I did a groupon deal with my girlfriend for the 2 hour intro sailing lesson and we had a lovely time. Our instructor Joe was a great teacher and did a good job of explaining the basics to us. He made sure we understood the different nautical vocabulary as well as different methods of maneuvering the boat. He let us... More

We had the best time on our two hour introduction lesson. The wind was up and we had to reef the sail but Ricky our instructor had it all in hand. He was great in that he talked everyone through each step. My wife and I are thinking of taking more lessons next year.

I took the 102S course in May and I had the best weekend at the Annapolis Sailing School! The instructors were friendly, encouraging, and knowledgable. With a brief instruction in the classroom... before we knew it we were out practicing what we learned in the classroom on a sailboat! I would highly recommend taking this course to start out your...

We took a private half-day lesson in Jul 2014 and then rented a Rainbow 24 for a day in late September. Our experience was excellent on both days. The staff were very helpful and cheerfully let us make a few mistakes (and learn from them!). We grounded going out on our own but the yard's boat quickly helped us out.... More

The men went sailing sat and sun and the women went pique-nique on the beach which is not too fantastic but pleasant by the water- The beach should be forbidden to dogs.

This school has taught thousands how to sail. They offer the very basic instruction for beginners and more andvanced instruction for those who want to go further in the sport. They also have excellent connections in the racing and cruising communities so they can be an excellent resource for east coast sailors.

We are in our 60's and wanted to further our sailing skills with a three day mini-holiday and BCC certification. Our instruction, Pat, was our age, very experienced in sailing and very patient as an instructor. Occasionally, he would disappear below and we'd have a chance to try out our skills - his confidence developed our confidence. We were very... More

Took the week long intro course for certification, sailed almost every minute the weather permitted (and the weather was very iffy the first three days), had new instructor the last day which was good for getting a different viewpoint. John was awesome, patient, let us make mistakes and was encouraging - he shared his passion and experience without reservation! We... More

I found the teaching staff too young and too distracted, a bit lazy. This was several years ago, might have changed. I've sent my grandchildren to several in the area and this disappointed me
