Learn to Sail 

Whether you strive to be a world champion sailor or you just like messing around in boats, sailing classes at Cooper River Yacht club can help you achieve your sailing dreams.  Over the past 50 years the Cooper River Sailing School has prepared numerous sailors for recreational and competitive sailing.   Several regional, national, and world champions have actually received their start in the Cooper River Yacht Club "Learn To Sail" program.

Instruction is provided by experienced sailing instructors.  Youth classes are daytime on weekdays.  Adult classes are evening classes.   Classes are held in the award winning Cooper River Park.

The curriculum is developed from proven source material developed by US Sailing, the governing body of the sport.  Safety on and around the water is emphasized.  All students must wear life jackets on and off the water.  There is always one or more safety boats in the water during classes.
