For more than 70 years, Sheridan Shore Sailing School has been proud to offer students of all ages the opportunity to experiences the thrill, challenge, and exhilaration of sailing. All SSSS coaches are U.S. Sailing Level 1 Small Boat and 1st AID/ CPR Certified. Our classes feature a low student- instructor ratio to teach the skills of sailing and seamanship to juniors, high school students and adults of all ability levels. In addition to summer sailing lessons, we also coach high school teams in the spring and fall as well as partner with the North Suburban Recreation Association to offer sailing to children and adults with disabilities.
In 2014, Sheridan Shore Sailing School became accredited as one of twenty six US Sailing Community Sailing Centers. This honor recognizes that SSSS exceeds all the required standards set forth by US Sailing and maintains an impressive commitment to high quality public access sailing through our educational resources and outstanding staff.
The Sailing School, a 501c (3) not-for-profit organization, operates in partnership with the Wilmette Harbor Association and is located at Sheridan Shore Yacht Club in Wilmette, IL.
