Quality, Not Quantity!
We offer year round instruction with a full spectrum of sailing courses in Boston, MA and advanced live-aboard courses held in the Caribbean all winter. Black Rock Sailing School offers comprehensive, hands-on instruction. Our program is purposefully small, allowing us to focus on a few students at a time, providing unprecedented support before, during, and after their graduation. Our proven curriculum is both fun and rigorous, providing you with the skills, knowledge, and confidence to take command of a boat on your own – guaranteed!
Since opening our doors in 2008, we have won national recognition by the American Sailing Association. Their independent surveys and scoring system have recognized the quality of our instruction, training fleet, curriculum, and overall mission to provide the highest level of sailing instruction.
By keeping our program small, we can afford to have some of the most rigorous hiring standards in the industry, and only need to hire the very best career instructors. Our team has proven themselves in the sailing world and in the classroom. They have been carefully selected to ensure that they have the personality, experience, and ability to pass along their knowledge in a safe and relaxed manner. All of our instructors are American Sailing Association Instructor Certified and hold their U.S. Coast Guard Captain’s license. Read our instructor bios to learn more about their backgrounds and accomplishments.
During our courses, students spend a majority of their time out on the water, so we insist on teaching aboard the best sailboat designs which provide an ideal combination of safety, stability, comfort, performance, and speed. We have the youngest, most reliable fleet of any major sailing school in Massachusetts and our design choices are second to none.
We are located at the Fan Pier Marina in South Boston, Massachusetts, in the heart of historic Boston Harbor. Entry level classes are taught within the protected waters of Boston Harbor and Hingham Bay, while our more advanced courses will take you to distant ports within Massachusetts Bay, Cape Cod Bay, and beyond. See our “News” section to read why learning to sail on Boston Harbor is such a great experience!
