COVID-19 Update (August 2021):
We are teaching at full capacity! We ask that students attending in-person theory and knots classes wear masks.
The Victoria Sailing School is Colorado's oldest and largest sailing school. Since its founding in 1986, we have trained thousands of students from the Rocky Mountain area. We are dedicated to providing the highest quality product. Our courses range from introductory sailing classes through Coastal and Celestial Navigation, for those wishing to fulfill their ultimate dream.
There is an old expression about learning how to sail "The Fastest Way to Learn How to Sail - Start in the Smallest Boat in the Coldest Water". We do not take this expression to extremes, but the J/22 offers an exceptional sailing experience for both the beginner and the old salt, who has been sailing their entire life. When you move up to the Basic Coastal Cruising (ASA 103) & Bareboat Chartering (ASA 104) courses, we introduce you to the J/30. Although the J/30 sails like a rocket, it is still a boat that weighs in at 5 tons, has an inboard diesel and all the gear common to cruising boats world wide. For the 48 hour cruise portion of the Bareboat Chartering course, we sail out of Marina del Rey, CA aboard 40 ft plus boats, introducing you to a both a large monohull and a catamaran!
Forget the hassles of maintenance, trailering and launching. Never mind the high costs of boat ownership. Our fleet of ten J/22's operate on 4 local reservoirs. Boats are available through a Why Buy Club as a cost effective way to maintain your sailing skills.
For other questions, use our contact information below. We will get back to you as soon as possible.
Thanks for your interest in the Victoria Sailing School,
