Holiday Specials - Give the Gift of Sailing

November 30 - December 23, 2023

Is there a sailor or someone with a sailing dream on your holiday shopping list? Modern Sailing makes shopping for a gift for your favorite sailor, sailor-to-be, or you, easy-breezy!

Purchase online, then contact our friendly office team to credit your purchase to your intended recipient. Your recipient can then pick the preferred dates from our Schedule and enroll whenever ready.

If you're purchasing for yourself, as soon as you complete checkout, you can browse the Schedule at your leisure to pick your course dates and enroll.

The special pricing listed below will end December 23, 2023. As long as you've made your purchase from this webpage by December 23, you can hold off on enrolling for as long as you like - or enroll right away, if you like!

Please feel free to contact our office if you'd prefer to interact with one of our friendly customer service representatives rather than purchase online. We're happy to help!

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.

  • John Boynton

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.

  • John Kratochvil, Oregon

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.
