Learn to Sail at Edison Sailing Center!

Located on the Caloosahatchee River in North Shore Park, in North Fort Myers, we teach youth how to sail in a fun – and safe – environment.

Each summer, Edison Sailing Center schedules sessions on a weekly basis and welcomes more than 200 children ages 8-15 to sailing. In these weeklong sessions, instructors teach the basics of wind and current, points of sail, common knots important to sailors, tacking, and boat handling.

Youth grow in confidence and self-reliance, problem-solving, and teamwork while learning to maneuver their boats from the shore into the river and back again. Sailing can be an individual activity, a pair, or even a crew with a skipper, depending on the boat. For our purposes, we use the Optimist Dinghy & McLaughlin Cube, the Laser, and the Vanguard & Zim 420.

If your school hosts a fundraising event during the year, please contact us to request a gift certificate good for one week of sailing that can be used as part of your event!
