Whether you’re brand new to sailing or a seasoned “old salty”, SailTime will place you at the helm of a beautiful new Beneteau or Jeanneau sailing yacht with confidence and competence. We teach all of our lessons on new cruising style sailing yachts equipped with all of the latest electronics and full featured equipment lists because we believe our students should learn on the style boats they are most likely to sail on in the future. Come let us show you how fun and easy modern sailing can be!

At SailTime Sailing School we are the newest and nicest fleet on the Gulf Coast and Upper Galveston Bay area. Conveniently situated in Kemah, just 30 minutes from downtown Houston or Galveston. We offer a full range of beginner to advanced sailing courses and pride ourselves in the quality of our fleet, classroom and instructors.  Our courses are taught on new modern Beneteau and Jenneau cruising class sailing vessels ranging from 38′-45′. Our fleet is professionally maintained, cleaned and sanitized weekly and are safe, dry and comfortable for every level of sailor. Our large 3200sq ft office and modern classroom with views overlooking Clear Lake and Galveston Bay will have you feeling right on the water during class.  We have several ASA’s “Outstanding Instructor’s of the Year” on staff that we work closely with to guarantee the highest quality instruction on and off the water. Our school is a growing part of SailTime Houston, a fractional boat membership club that offers additional sailing opportunities, events and discounts year round to our students and members.
