Getaway Sailing

Welcome Getaway Sailing Sailors! J World Annapolis is excited to announce that we are expanding our relationship as the exclusive provider of sailing and powerboat education for the Chesapeake Boating Club. This spring J World Annapolis will begin offering courses at the Chesapeake Boating Club’s new Baltimore location – formerly Getaway Sailing.  For 20 years, J World Annapolis and the Chesapeake Boating Club have partnered together to provide the best in education and access for Chesapeake Bay boaters and we are excited to help Baltimore area boaters learn to sail, improve their confidence and gain access to Baltimore Harbor and the Chesapeake Bay! Initially, we will will be offering our 16 hour Sailing Fundamentals course in two formats. For sailors who have the opportunity to spend two days or a weekend learning the ropes we will offer our two day course that will get you started on the right path! For sailors with other obligations we will offer the exact same course in five, three-hour evening sessions. Both courses are on-the-water focused and designed to help you get sailing right – right now. Sailing Fundamentals course is a great primer for the person who wants to discover the exciting sport of sailing or become a more competent and helpful crew without committing to a full-length course. Our curriculum presents key elements of sailing including terminology, steering and basic sail trim. If conditions permit, you may have a brief introduction to additional areas including safety and navigation such as those covered in depth in our Sailing Fundamentals Five Day and Three Weekend format. You will complete this class with the knowledge and confidence to competently crew or steer in protected waters in light to moderate conditions. Since 1992 J World Annapolis has been providing the very best in sailing coaching and instruction to new and experienced sailors from around the world. There are a few things that set J World apart from the rest of the sailing education community. We hope you will come and see how good a sailing school can be. J World Annapolis prides itself on being known as “the performance sailing school,” where you learn much more than the basics of sailing. Our instructors are standouts within the sailing instruction community, with years of training and sailing experience. Our staff has the extensive sailing and teaching backgrounds to allow them to present you with not only the how-to side of sailing, but also the why. Like each of our students from beginner to racing skipper, you will find that your course at J World will dramatically increase both your skill level and confidence onboard. At J World, we recognize that performance sailing instruction means small classes with low student/coach ratios, and where training is tailored to complement your present skill and knowledge levels. We want you to get the most from your J World experience and not get lost in a crowd of students. For 20 years J World Annapolis has been the premier sailing school in the Chesapeake Bay and we are excited to bring the J World method of excellent sailing education to Baltimore.
