You can learn to sail at Delta Sailing School
There’s something for everyone whether you’re an experienced sailor, new to sailing, or coming back to the sport after some time away.
Delta Sailing School is an American Sailing Association (ASA) accredited sailing school in the beautiful California Delta just an hour south of Sacramento and an hour east of Marin.
We offer classes and club membership in the beautiful, laid-back, natural environment of the spectacular California Delta. With over 1,000 miles of waterway, we have lots of space for sailing and enjoying this peaceful gem that not too many people have discovered yet.
The warm climate, steady winds up from the SF Bay, and incredible scenery and wildlife make the Delta an excellent place to sail!
We offer a wide variety of sailing classes, from basic sailing taught aboard our 22-foot sailboats, to advanced ocean cruising skills aboard our larger boats, for brand new sailors and for those experienced sailors who want to accelerate their knowledge and ability! Our beginning classes are taught in the Delta and our advanced classes are taught in the SF Bay and on the Pacific Ocean. All of our instructors are US Coast Guard Licensed Captains and ASA Certified Instructors who LOVE to teach sailing!
Our classes are limited to two students giving each person plenty of time to learn sailing skills including steering, tacking and jibing, trimming the sails, operating the outboard engine, reefing the sails when the wind picks up, docking the boat, and more. All of our on-the-water and classroom classes are small so that each student gets a lot of support and personal attention.
We also offer sailboat usage through club membership. Joining our sailing club is a fun and affordable way to sail without the time and expense of maintaining your own boat.
