Sailing Camps on the OBX
OBX Sailing School/East Coast Sailboats has been teaching sailing on the Outer Banks since 2012 at Nor’banks Sailing Center. This year we are happy to announce we will have a second teaching location at the Southern Shores, North Marina. We have partnered with the Southern Shores Civic Association this year in order to promote sailing, boating , and paddling at our community property locations.
Our experienced and professional staff of Instructors, excellent fleet of sailboats, superior location, warm shallow waters and steady breezes combine to make sailing on the Currituck sound the best location on the Outer Banks to learn how to sailing. The goal of our camps is to provide an exciting and fun experience during which students develop sailing skills, learn seamanship, gain self-confidence and most importantly have fun!!
