Big Blue Sailing Academy

Welcome to Big Blue Sailing Academy 2014!


Whether you are an adult dreaming of retiring to the islands or a kid looking for some independence, sailing lessons and sailing camps at Big Blue Sailing Academy are just right for you. What are you waiting for? Learn to sail now!


The adult learn-to-sail course is designed to fit into even the busiest of summer schedules. We are offering a variety of learn to sail sessions, including weekdays after work and on weekends. During the adult sessions, sailing skills are presented in a relaxed and informal atmosphere with an emphasis on active participation and fun on board our collegiate racing dinghies. This adult class is ideal for anyone 17 years or older. Get outdoors!


Our co-ed youth lessons put kids, ages 10-16, on the water in a fun, active, and outdoor recreational atmosphere learning boating safety and basic, intermediate, and advanced sailing skills. These young sailors will have an outstanding summer as they master a sport they can enjoy for a lifetime. This is a great place to get your child comfortable around water and build their confidence. Learning how to sail in a controlled environment is an experience your child won’t soon forget.


The camp is located on Old Dominion University campus, adjacent to the Elizabeth River in Norfolk, Virginia. You’ll see a variety of interesting marine traffic from a safe distance, and you might be surprised by the amount of birds and aquatic wildlife visiting this busy river.


I hope to see you on the water.


Mitch Brindley, Head Sailing Coach
