“Make a positive difference in every life we touch”

At East Carolina Sailing School we are committed to your success. We understand that it is difficult to pick up everything you want to know and feel confident taking a sailboat out on your own after just one class.  That is why we allow you to come back and retake our classes, on a space available basis, with no additional charge. That includes the Day Sailor and Overnight classes. There will be a surcharge of $250 to cover food and charter rates on a Cruiser class audit.

Each of our classes uses a progressively larger boat so that you gain experience on typical sailing yachts used for day sailing, overnight cruises and liveaboard type boats.  Our sailboats consist of two  Capri 25’s, and an Irwin 34. We also charter other boats as needed.

We have built a reputation for training outstanding sailors that not only know how to sail but how to take care of a vessel and the crew. You will know and will have performed proper docking, mooring and anchoring procedures as well as how to operate and take care of the various systems aboard a modern cruising yacht.

We offer three times the amount of experience as other schools.  After each outing, one of our ASA certified instructors will sign your logbook and document the amount of sea time you have accumulated to build your sailing resume and ensure a safe and enjoyable charter anywhere in the world.

At East Carolina Sailing School we want you to succeed, we want to introduce you to the wonderful world of sailing and all the adventures that it will enable you to experience. Call us today at (252) 557-9783 to sign up for one of our packages and start living your dream.
