Sailing Lessons and the Sailing Experience

We offer private sailing experiences at our partner business Nor’Banks Sailing and Watersports, located in Duck NC. This site provides a great destination to sail on the Currituck Sound; a professional watersports location with fun options for the family before or after sailing, an onsite restaurant( The Village Table and Tavern), and a sunset bar downstairs for those late days on the water.


If you have never sailed and want to learn, just learned how to sail, have not sailed in a long time and need a refresher lesson we are here to help. Schedule your sailing lesson with us. We offer instruction on both mono-hull and Multihull sailboats. The goal of our sailing lessons is to provide a fun experience during which you develop sailing skills, learn seamanship and water safety. 

The Sailing Experience

Want to take your first sailboat ride? Come sail with one of our sailing coaches for a 1 on 1 session or up to 4 people. Enjoy the ride on the Currituck sound. Want something more exciting? We can tailor your sailing experience to any boat in our fleet. Our fleet consists of recent modern designs and are well maintained.    

US Sailing Certification

Our step process of teaching sailing instructs new sailors from the beginning to sail and beyond. Our job is to create lifelong sailors. We use the US Sailing course curriculum in ‘Learning Sailing Right’ and ‘The Little Red Book.’ Contact us with any questions you have in a lesson. Gift Certificates are available.
