Welcome Aboard!

We’re glad you’re visiting us and we are ready to help you get on the water and learn more about boating, safety, and seamanship.  If you are new to sailing, we’ll give you the knowledge and experience you need to become a confident sailor.  If you want to learn how to handle small or large powerboats, we’ll put you at the controls with a great instructor. 


Dear OCC School of Sailing & Seamanship Community,

We are excited to share that we are re-opening The School beginning with our summer camp programs. Following guidance set by the State of California Department of Health, we are able to offer youth sailing, beginning Monday June 22nd.
We look forward to extending this opening to adult programs, lessons, and member rentals. However, as a program of Orange Coast College we are required to wait for guidance directed towards higher education before opening. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we navigate the route to return to “normal.”
As we anticipate opening adult programming in the near future, we have activated waitlists for each of our scheduled classes in July. Visit our registration page for up-to-date class schedules. Please add yourself to the waitlist if you are interested in attending a class – our office staff will contact you when we are able to take registration for that class. Note that we have closed registration for July classes, so the waitlist does not mean the class is already full!
As we re-open The School, we will be implementing guidelines for keeping our staff, students, and visitors healthy. To learn more:

  • Sailing Center Covid19 Guidelines

In the event that we are required to remain closed or cancel certain classes, affected participants will be contacted directly.  Course fees may be converted to a voucher, or refunded minus any transaction fees.
We look forward to seeing you on the water in the coming weeks,
The OCC School of Sailing & Seamanship
