Sarasota, Venice and Englewood are very active sailing communities. There are youth sailing programs, youth and adult racing seasons, numerous yacht clubs, Sarasota Sailing Squadron and one of the largest and most active chapters of the United States Power Squadron. We also offer wonderful wind and aqua blue water. Oh my do we have water! Sailing here includes sun dancing on the water by day and shimmering through unforgettable sunsets.

The winds are usually light from the east until the sea breeze kicks in shortly after noon each day when the winds build to a pleasant, cooling 10-15 knot breeze from the west. Perfect conditions for sailing. This area has an abundance of sailing gear, youth instruction, certification classes, rental boats, charters, racing, comraderie ...and did we mention sunshine all year long?
