Ten Reasons to Choose Flagship Sailing

  • Proven history of American Sailing Association success for 16 years. Flagship Sailing is first and foremost a sailing school. It is not a charter company that offers sailing lessons in order to support what is primarily a charter business.
  • Professional, experienced instructors certified by the ASA and the USCG. Our staff also includes an Instructor Evaluator (authorized to certify new ASA instructors as well as students).
  • Professional staff to assist you in selecting the right classes matched to your needs. Competent and friendly assistance to make sure you are getting the best course of instruction at the best price.
  • Pricing that reflects a commitment to professionalism. Our prices are based on best value and reward our students with the most knowledge and experience per dollar invested.
  • Boats that are matched to the skill-level requirements of the courses taught. Students are taught onboard well maintained, easily maneuverable and forgiving Catalina Sloops.
  • Personal attention with a low student/instructor ratio. There are no more than four students per class, often only two or three.
  • Convenience. The Greater Tampa Bay area is served by three major airports – Tampa, Clearwater and Sarasota. The Flagship Sailing office is only minutes from I-75.
  • Safety. Our facilities include all required and recommended safety equipment. Our sailboats are moored at floating docks in a protected Marina.
  • Year-round vacation destination. We recognize that members of a family may not all be consumed with a desire to sail. The Tampa Bay area offers more than incredible sailing. Nearby you will find professional baseball, football, and hockey together with award-winning beaches, museums, hotels, and restaurants. Orlando, with its attractions, is only a two-hour drive.
  • Flagship Sailing is convenient from all points North, South, East, and West. See driving directions.
