At Windward Sailing Club, You are the Captain! All it takes to sail our boats is the successful completion of our thorough, private, and individualized instructional program or on-the-water certification ride. Before you know it, you'll be captaining one of our vessels as if it were your own. You and your guests will appreciate the attention to detail our professional maintenance crew gives each vessel. The yachts we offer are clean, regularly maintained and inspected, and beautifully appointed, and they meet full safety requirements. We take care of all cleanup chores after your trip to make your leisure time more enjoyable and complete.

Your Cruise — Your Boat

Upon boarding, you tailor your sailing charter for the experience you want. Snorkeling, swimming, and relaxing in a Catalina is one option. Or you can use Windward's vessels to entertain business clients, celebrate special occasions, entertain your family on vacation, or simply motor around the harbors and dine at one of the many restaurants that provide guest docking facilities. Our fleet includes a wide variety of vessels, ranging from 28' to 44', and can accommodate 6-8 guests for overnight trips and 2-15 guests for day sails.
