For over forty years now Island Sailing has been empowering new emerging and existing sailors. Here at the Island Sailing Academy we believe that good seamanship should be at the heart of everything we do when we’re out on the water and it’s that attitude of approach that we are always striving to share and instill in our students.
We believe that when you ensure you’re covering the basics of doing things the right way which is of course the safe way, only then can you truly relax into the amazing experience of sailing – which unto itself is an endless pursuit of learning and improving that opens up a world of possibilities for those who pursue it.
We do what we do here at Island Sailing because sailing is incredibly empowering and we just love to help our wonderful clients get out there so they can in turn create their own perfect sailing experiences.
