The Outer Banks Community Sailing Program located at the boat shop on the Manteo Waterfront is an “on-the-water program” of the Roanoke Island Maritime Museum. The youth program started in 2000 to make the adventure of sailing available to youth in Dare County and visitors.

Sailing helps instill teamwork, concentration, self confidence, and appreciation for nature all wrapped up in a fun and exciting package. The program teaches youth ages 8 and older basic, intermediate and advanced sailing skills. Adult programs are also available.

All instruction is based on US Sailing guidelines. US Sailing is the governing body of the sport of sailing in the United Sates.

Our coaches are experienced sailors and instructors and have years of sailing experience in various boats. Their experience includes racing at the college and club levels.

Applications are available in the forms & fees section.
