Founded in 2015, Learn to Sail Inc. of Punta Gorda, FL. is a not-for-profit 501c (3) organization offering sailing instruction to children and adults. We believe sailing is an adventure for a lifetime. While learning to sail children learn life skills that will endure. Sailing challenges and builds confidence by taking children outdoors, out of their comfort zone, and into a world of wind and water. They learn to rig and pilot their own sailboats on beautiful Charlotte Harbor. Learn to Sail’s success is measured in the competence, discipline, responsibility and leadership skills that blossom in our students. All of this is also available to adults who join our rapidly growing adult classes.
Come join us as a student, parent, volunteer or donor as we sail Charlotte Harbor. Instruction is by certified US Sailing Instructors backed up by a team of seasoned volunteers. Safety is taught before sailing starts. We have a fleet of safety boats that deploy before the first sailboat is launched. All sailors must pass a swim test before instruction can begin, life jackets are mandatory, and we always have our eye on the weather.
