THE MARYLAND SCHOOL OF SAILING & SEAMANSHIP is dedicated to bringing high quality educational and training programs to the boating public. Our programs are targeted to those individuals who want to make significant progress along a path of continued development and to eventually become highly trained and skilled in their chosen areas. This level of achievement can only be brought about through dedicated and serious effort in a comprehensive and continuing program taught by skilled professionals. 

Our keelboat sailing certification program is based on the very thorough performance standards, text books and training support material developed by the American Sailing Association. It includes a series of seven consecutive courses and takes a beginner from basic boat handling and sailing on through increasing levels of complexity to Offshore Passagemaking. It combines classroom, online and home study and a substantial amount of hands-on sail training on well-found sailing yachts. 

The student who successfully completes this curriculum has entered a group of elite who have the ability, experience and confidence to operate sophisticated yachts in remote areas away from the immediate support and distractions of modern society.

Those who choose may temporarily or permanently stop their training at some intermediate level, such as Bareboat Chartering or Coastal Navigation. As there are no time limits for successful completion of this curriculum, an individual may resume training at any convenient time.

We are a serious school for serious sailors, and our track record of completed advanced ocean cruises demonstrates this. 

Take a look at why we think you should choose us when looking for sailing and seamanship training.
