BaySail’s teaching philosophy is to ensure that the student gets as much time behind the helm as possible while making certain the experience is fun, educational and above all increases one’s passion for sailing.

BaySail classes are taught on sailboats ranging 22 to 38 ft., that are sized to accommodate the recommended boat length for the level of certification attained. In addition, BaySail offers a three-day course option for all levels ensuring the student has ample time at the helm.

BaySail has a team of certified instructors, many whom have been awarded by ASA for ‘Outstanding Instructor of the Year’ award.

BaySail is located at the top of the Chesapeake Bay in historic Havre de Grace, Maryland. Our location is a short ride from Baltimore and Philadelphia. The harbor at BaySail is excellent for learning with protected waters and consistent winds. The facilities are very comprehensive with two classrooms, a marine store, and several quaint bed and breakfasts within walking distance to the marina. Take a stroll down Washington St and enjoy a variety of shops and dining options.
