Norton’s Sailing School is an ASA certified Sailing School in Virginia on the Chesapeake Bay. ASA (American Sailing Association) is the oldest and the best sailing curriculum available. ASA credentials are recognized worldwide, so the skills you obtain through our fully sanctioned sailing classes will allow you to charter a sailboat with Norton Yachts or any other charter company in the world. Norton’s Sailing School also provides students with top notch sailing instructors who love the water and think the Bay is the best classroom. We believe that students learn best when 90% of the instruction is on the water. Our instruction is comprehensive, yet relaxed because we want our students to have fun while they are learning to sail! Norton teaches on late model Hunter or Jeanneau sailboats within the range of 28-36 feet. Our vessels are equipped with inboard power and wheel steering. We will even teach you on your own boat!
