Looking to learn sailing in Los Angeles

Hello all,

Can anyone recommend a sailing school in the Los Angeles area? I would like to learn but don't have any recommendations.

Thanks in advance,

Jim Zafrani

I took ASA 101 & 103 at SeaMist Skippers in Marina Del Ray. I thought they had a decent fleet as well as reasonable prices.

Good luck

I've taken ASA 101 and 103 from Blue Water Sailing (bluewatersailing dot com sorry, I can't post links yet). I'd recommend them very highly. They also offer International Yachtmaster certification.

Seamist Skippers have changed their name to "Blue Pacific Sailing". I don't know if that's the same as Pacific Sailing that you asked about, DKA.

Orange Coast College School of Sailing and Seamanship

I know it's quite a drive for you (it's in Newport Beach), but I think it's worth it. The courses (U.S. Sailing Assoc.) are a little more detailed. A friend of mine did the ASA keelboat cert. about the same time I did the USSA keelboat cert at OCC, so we've compared.

I used vacation time to do the condensed course, which made it easier for me to do the drive.
