Fast Track® Sail and Power Courses Are Great Staycations!

Steve and Doris Colgate’s Offshore Sailing School has wonderful "staycations" and "nearcations" that get you out on the water in open air. Your time learning to sail or handle a power boat can be private or in groups of no more than 4, with a dedicated instructor who makes sure there is appropriate physical space aboard. We are here for you! Time on the water is the most valuable outlet we all have to soothe our souls. If you are new to Offshore Sailing School, consider joining our more than 150,000 graduates who enthusiastically endorse our reputation as America’s #1 Sailing School®. If you already are an Offshore Sailing School graduate, welcome back! And to all - please stay well.
