Community Learn to Sail

The College of Charleston Sailing Program offers non-credit, adult community sailing classes from May through July.  The program offers several types of courses to fit your schedule and needs.  Our boats have been modified for instructional purposes, allowing for ideal learning situations and a comfortable exciting sailing experience. Our College of Charleston sailing complex is located in the Patriots Point Marina in Mt Pleasant, adjacent to the Charleston Harbor Resort and Marina Hotel.  Once on the main marina dock, turn right towards the Yorktown and follow the signs to C of C Sailing.
