U-SAIL of Central Florida is a great place to learn the sailing basics. We are located on the protected waters of Lake Monroe, part of the beautiful St. Johns River and just minutes from Orlando. Our fleet consists of keelboat in sizes from 18' to 30', fully rigged and coast guard compliant. Captain/Instructors have 30+ years of sailing experience both racing and cruising. U-Sail was selected as one of the Outstanding Sailing Schools for 2012 by the American Sailing Association (ASA), based on student evaluations. Once you've completed your certifications, join the sailboat club, an easy and accessible way to practice your new skills.

Services provided by U-SAIL include basic sailing lessons on keelboats with ASA certifications, plus basic coastal cruising courses and coastal navigation. Anyone curious about the exciting world of sailing can also request an Introduction to sailing (a two hour sailing experience with a captain/instructor). We pride ourselves in making learning to sail fun and accessible to all types of schedules.

My wife and I took the Introduction to Sailing Course with Captain DJ yesterday and had a great time. Captain DJ was very knowledgable and fun; she taught us a lot in just 2 hours. We were fortunate to have good weather, and being out on the water with just the sound of the wind moving you along is fantastic.... More

She was very thorough and patient with us. We came out feeling confident to now go and practice these basic skills in our own sailboat. We definitely recommend this sailing... More

I just cannot express how much their 2 hour Introduction to Sailing has meant to me. Capt DJ made our experience not only fun but totally overcame our apprehension about tipping over in a sailboat. This has completely invigorated my 67 year old brain and body. There will be plenty of time to sit in a rocker pondering all my... More
