Sailing Camps

2024 Sailing Camp

East Coast Sailboats/Sail OBX has been teaching sailing on the Outer Banks since 2016. Our experienced and professional staff of US Sailing Instructors, excellent fleet of sailboats, superior locations, warm shallow waters and steady breezes combine to make sailing on the Currituck sound the best on the Outer Banks.

The goal of our camps is to provide an exciting and fun experience during which students develop sailing skills, learn seamanship, water safety, gain self-confidence and most importantly have fun!! Our step process of teaching sailing takes young aspiring sailors from our introductory course, to learning how to sail and beyond. We use the US Sailing course curriculum in ‘Learning Sailing Right’ and ‘The Little Red Book.’ Space is limited so please book early.  

Swimming Requirements

For safety, all sailors are required to pass a basic swimming check on their first day. The test includes a 25-yard swim without the assistance of a life jacket and 3 minutes of treading or floating on the water with a life jacket. Parents, please understand that if your child does not pass they will not be able to continue with camp.

Each camp is outlined below by level.

2024 Sailing Camp Schedule & Locations

In order to discourage the use of single use plastic water bottles, we will provide each student a reusable Nalgene water bottle for camp when you sign up, and will be delivered to your child on the first day of camp. These are theirs to keep. If you would like to purchase additional Nalgene Water Bottles, please follow the link.  

Registration page will be live in mid January.
