Very early in the history of Annapolis Sailing School we realized that the best way to learn to sail was by sailing. All of our instruction, whether introductory or advanced, reflects this commitment to hands on, experience-based learning.
Some concepts are best conveyed in a classroom setting, and there is a place for formal theory in any learning program. The “Annapolis Way,” however, blends a minimum of theory with a maximum of hands on experience. In most of our introductory courses, students will be on the water, actually sailing, within an hour of the start of the class...
Thank you for your interest in Annapolis Sailing School. When we first started teaching beginners to sail in 1959 we were the only adult sailing school in the country. Now there are many schools from which to choose. We appreciate the fact that you have chosen us and we will work hard to earn your trust.
Sailing is many sports in one, and can be pursued in as intense or casual a manner as you choose. At Annapolis Sailing School our goal is to provide a safe, enjoyable introduction to recreational sailing for the whole family. Our approach is low key, relaxed and tailored to make your introduction to sailing a fun experience.
Since 1959 we have introduced literally tens of thousands of students to the fun of sailing. Our unique blend of theory and practice has come to be known as the “Annapolis Way” to learn to sail. We hope you enjoy sailing with us!
