Veterans Sailing Education Program Details
St Augustine Sailing invites all veterans and active military personnel to share our passion for sailing by offering a 10% discount on our ASA Sailing Courses. To encourage learning all courses are a minimum of 2 students but never more than 4 students. This provides each student both time on wheel and time running the lines. So from basic to advanced courses, we can help you achieve your on-the-water sailing goals.
We do understand that at times students prefer private instruction. We can accommodate this request on our ASA 101 course with the minimum fee of 2 students less the veterans discount of 10%.
We are located in Camachee Cove Marina with immediate access to the ICW and just minutes away from offshore sailing. Our students experience conditions they will experience in actual coastal cruising: tidal currents in inlets and rivers, using channel markers and buoys, anchoring in situations of wind and current, sailing offshore out of sight of land and more. We have the best sailing in Northeast Florida, and few locations have such a variety of sailing conditions so nearby.
We are conveniently located near Jacksonville, Daytona, Orlando, Gainesville, and surrounding areas. For our out-of-state students, Jacksonville airport is less than an hour’s drive, and Orlando airport is about 2 hours away.
