SAILING's roots are based in racing, but, the organization has developed
programs and services for all sailors.
For more than 20 years, US SAILING has been training and certifying
instructors in both dinghy and keelboat. Five years ago, the organization
introduced the Keelboat Program. This comprehensive program provides new
sailors with a clear pathway of education from the beginning sailor to the
offshore passage maker. It also provides experienced sailors with a way to
improve their skills at any level. The certification program is
transferable between all of the schools in the US SAILING system."
