What We Offer Our Associates

As an association, we are individuals who work together to achieve a common purpose. Our purpose is to sail often with like-minded people and to enjoy the fascinating world of sailing on a non-profit basis. Joining as a sailing associate of Spirit of the Sea Sailing Association you can choose your ideal sailing experience. You have an option to simply relax on the teak deck after either a hectic day’s work or a busy day touring the city, or participate in all sailing activities with our skippers as you wish.

As an associate, you will be able to register for all sailing activities through normal channels of communication such as; phone, email, social media channels such as Instagram, Facebook, and our Google page for your convenience.

  • You must have at least a full day of sailing experience on a sailing boat of no more than 15 meters in length.

General Sailing Activities

The Spirit of the Sea Sailing Association is here to show you that the best way to learn sailing is by going sailing. You will be sailing with a maximum of 6 members plus a skipper and 1 crew onboard our classic Taos 34 sailing boat. After a full safety briefing, the skipper will assign a task to participants adjusting to their sailing knowledge and desire to participate. This is the ideal solution for those who want to learn to sail and improve their sailing experience before chartering a sailing boat on their own or require further practice to gain confidence in the handling of a classic Taos 34 sailing boat. We also welcome associates that enjoy sailing often to meet other like-minded sailors to share the sailing passion.
