Fun, safe and accessible sailing for kids.

 Good News! 

We have a new registration app that is easily accessible through any mobile device or our website.  It will help us organize sailor records, comply with state regulations and enhance the coordination of attendance and bookkeeping.

As you register, please read the waivers and forms carefully, and get back to us with any questions.  There are some important changes, including the introduction of Early Bird Pricing (prior to May 1), an Extended Day option (8 AM to 5PM), and some new scholarship guidelines.

There are some program enhancements for 2020:

  • Half-day Opti introductory sailing will be offered mornings for ONLY the weeks of July 6 and August 3.   All other programs are full day.
  • Last year’s Independence Week program was very popular and is back this year – single days of Adventure Sail and Stand Up Paddleboard, June 29th through July 2nd.
  • The CIT program curriculum will be more structured to offer candidates an even better opportunity to learn teaching and management skills needed in a good sailing instructor.
  • Culminating in Marblehead Junior Race Week participation, Sail Salem will be offering a Race Clinic program for our most experienced sailors.
