Learn To Sail

Attention-public-400One of the primary functions of the CSULB Sailing Association is instruction. Sailing lessons are available for those at many skill levels, including those with no previous sailing experience. 

All CSULBSA classes are taught by U.S. Sailing-certified instructors. 

Students who pass the Beginner course become active club members and also earn a U.S. Sailing completion card

More information about the courses we offer is available below.
