Awesome! I stayed for 5 days, and I sailed with 3 different instructors. They were all great! I am a novice sailor, and I had a lot of questions. They are very good at teaching and I leaned a lot! I will sign up my husband and my kids for classes! The area is also great for food - lots of good restaurants and bars nearby.

We have taken two courses with Annapolis Sailing School and enjoyed both. Their instructors are knowledgeable, fun and thorough. The sailboats are very safe and sailing in Annapolis Harbor is beautiful, albeit busy as anything with all the boat traffic.

Our instructor, Pat Aaron, has a wealth of sailing experience and was happy to share it with his students. Classes are seldom more than three students so all questions get answers and instruction is personalized. The boats used for ASA 103 are well equipped and in great shape. We learned a LOT and also had a lot of fun.

Super instructors. Practical yet knowledge filled programs. Enjoyed all five days and well worth it, especially ASA 103 with the bigger boat (37 feet). I highly recommend ASS.

I’ve taken other sailing lessons, but after taking the 101 course, I feel like I’m finally on my way to understanding sailing. Gibing and broad reaches and donuts are no longer foreign concepts. We were very fortunate to have Phill S our instructor on our boat. 16 mph and then 12 mph winds the next day made it thrilling, not scary, because you also learn Rainbows ( the sailboat) don’t tip over. Highly recommend the School and Phil!

This weekend I took ASA103 at Annapolis Sailing School and had a terrific experience. Our instructor was John Cosby who can teach many of the courses the school offers. My colleagues Patrick and Michael were fortunate to have John as our instructor. He has a tremendous amount of experience which he shared with us both on the boat and in the classroom.
This is not the only course I've taken as Annapolis Sailing School and I have sailed there dozens of times. I highly recommend you visit them for a half-day of sailing one of their rental Rainbows and then a beer on the beach remembering your day.
Thanks again John!

Great experience for our 8 and 10 year old grandchildren. Ready to go for longer time next year. Their dad went 30 years ago and loved it also

The Annapolis Sailing School 3-day ASA 101 Keelboat Sailing course was an amazing experience! Such a terrific gift from my sister for my 60th birthday! It was truly such a great experience to not only immerse myself in a brand new challenge (with my sister!), but to be in the clearly capable hands of Phil and Emily made for a perfect adventure! Even Mother Nature cooperated with beautiful summer sailing conditions. Considering that I came in with zero sailing experience, I found the pre-course study guide to be extremely helpful, and the first day classroom time with Phil was key in prepping for the hands-on afloat training. For me, I wish I had studied the right-of-way section a little more closely given the amount of boat traffic On the Severn on such a beautiful summer weekend. It may have helped with my confidence level to have had that portion mastered. Other than that, my biggest challenge was my tiller-hand coordination. Geezsh! It was a struggle! Emily, thank you so much for your incredible patience and instruction! You handled my internal struggle with such tact and grace, I can’t thank you enough for your calm and considerate guidance.
In addition to the terrific crew of Annapolis Sailing School, if you have the opportunity to spend some time with the history, people and food of Annapolis (Oh, the delicious food!), I highly recommend the whole wonderful adventure. I absolutely can not imagine having a better experience!

If “the sea’s in your veins,” then there is nowhere else to go to learn to sail other than the Annapolis Sailing School! The three day Basic Keelboat Certification course (101) was pure joy and loads of fun. Chris and Emily are the best instructors on earth. They provide an amazing wealth of knowledge to help you gain confidence at the helm. From day one you feel like part of the family, I highly recommend this experience. It will blow your mind and change your life. It sure did for me!!!!!

John Cosby delivered masterful private 2-day training, even tho' there was zero wind both days! Although the sailing experience of the three students spanned a wide range, John made the most of every hour by inquiring what each wanted to learn and then tailoring the lesson to meet all of the knowledge levels. We learned about the basics of a sailboat, the navigation markers, right-of-way scenarios, maximizing the power of wind directions, and conquering the intimidation of docking. John simplified terms and used examples, humor metaphors, and experiential learning to help us to commit the learning to memory. The biggest value to all 3 of we students was demonstrating and practicing the ability to slow down any maneuver to gain control, confidence, and calm as a sailor. As a novice sailor, I now have faith in my knowledge and ability to drive the boat safely and also to be able to relax and have fun. I plan to take a future class with Annapolis Sailing School to apply this foundation of boating under motor and sailing safety basics to sailing by harnessing the wind. I highly recommend this school to any sailor of any level of experience!
