The beautiful and historic town of Southport, North Carolina, is an ideal base for sailing lessons. Here the Cape Fear River bends around Battery Island, and meets the Atlantic Ocean between Bald Island and Oak Island. This is a great location for family vacations, romantic get-aways, uncrowded beaches, and outdoor adventures. Priority Sailing Academy offers sailing lessons, practice and cruises year round, weather permitting. With the choices of sailing in the protected water of the Intracoastal Waterway, the broad waters of the Cape Fear River, and the exhilarating Long Bay of the Atlantic Ocean, students can find their comfort level and develop skills to sail most any place in the world.
