Brewer Pilots Point Marina Sailing School

Summer fun in the sun. Come sail with us!

Welcome to Brewer Pilots Point Marina Sailing School! For over 20 years we have shared our passion for sailing with students of all ages and skill levels. Our Junior Program offers instruction to students ages 8-16 in a fun, all-day class. Our Family & Adult Classes are taught on our Colgate 26, and are tailored to your skill level and schedule. We also offer US Sailing Basic Keelboat Certification Courses throughout the summer.

Junior Sailing Program

A daily sailing school for all levels of experience

Our sailing instructors are U.S. Sailing certified to teach every level, from novice to advanced racing. We work with small groups of students (6:1 student to instructor average) to ensure that each sailor is engaged, learning, and having a great experience. Throughout the program, we strive to promote life-long values such as sportsmanship, consideration for others, teamwork, and self-worth.

The Beginner level will focus on sailing basics, such as parts of the boat, rigging and de-rigging, seamanship, and points-of-sail, with the goal of each sailor becoming comfortable skippering and crewing in a 2-person sailboat.

The Intermediate level will build upon the basics by honing these skills and mastering all aspects of skippering and crewing a sailboat.

The Race Team is designed for sailors who are ready to take their sailing to the next level and test their skills against other sailors, both within the Junior Sailing Program and at regattas with other racing teams. They will train to improve their boat handling, boat speed, and tactics under an experienced race coach.
