Learn to Sail Today!

Sandy Point Sailing Association's mission is to build fundamental sailing skills, to create competent sailors with a life-long passion for sailing through comprehensive instruction, to foster personal confidence, teamwork, leadership, community and respect for the sea in a fun and safe environment.  Sandy Point has been an active organizer of junior sailing activities in Beverly, MA, since the middle of the last century.

Our experienced, US Sailing certified instructors are dedicated to preparing our future sailing community by offering a sequence of courses tailored to specific groups from beginners to racers for both the young and the young-at-heart. Students are given the opportunity to learn sailing and all facets of seamanship by: hoisting sails, tying knots, navigating, experiencing the wind, waves, tides & currents; and obeying the rules-of-the-road.

See what Sandy Point has to offer you today!
