After your initial sailing lessons

At Lanier Sailing Academy, we take you as a true beginner and transform you into an experienced skipper able to operate medium sized sailboats on lakes and bays for day sailing.  Our sailing lessons for beginners, (Basic Keelboat Course BKB-101), will certify you to operate sailboats big enough to comfortably take up to 5 friends and family as your crew.

After your initial sailing lessons (Basic Keelboat-101) are completed, we provide a fleet of sailboats that will allow you to perfect your sailing skills. You can either rent a boat or join one of our sailing clubs. Our sailing club members enjoy unlimited sailing with the knowledge that additional instruction is only one question away — at just 20% of the cost of sailboat ownership.
