Affordable Sailing for Singles and Families

The Van Isle Sailing Co-op is not a sailing school. We refer members to local sailing schools where qualified instructors will provide certification courses.

At the Co-op, if you don’t  know how to sail, we start you out as crew with experienced skippers.  As you gain knowledge and certifications, you too can become a skipper and take the boats out for day sails and short and long term cruises.

Every sailing outing is an opportunity to learn.  In the Co-op’s Saturday or Sunday Sailing program, a qualified skipper will help members hone their skills at docking, anchoring, crew overboard, sail trim or any other skill the crew feels they need practice on.
