The Tides Inn, Irvington
This is our sailing school headquarters. The location of THE TIDES INN makes it a truly wonderful location for a full service professional sailing school – the many sheltered areas of Carter Creek are ideal for kids sailing courses and beginner adult sunfish courses and the wide expanses of the Rappahannock River and the cruising grounds of the nearby Corrotoman provide ideal sailing waters for big boat sailing and for advanced sailing.
Rappahannock River Yacht Club
The RAPPAHANNOCK RIVER YACHT CLUB in Irvington lies close to the mouth of Carters Creek, just down the creek from Premier Sailing and the Tides Inn. The club opens its Junior Sailing Program to non-members to foster the sport of sailing and to encourage new families into the sport. Premier Sailing has been running this program for many years and many young RRYC members train as instructors with Premier Sailing. The fleet here includes Optimists and Sunfish and 420s.
Indian Creek Yacht and Country Club
We have been running the INDIAN CREEK YACHT CLUB AND COUNTRY CLUB sailing program since 2014. This program was founded more than twenty years ago by the club and has enjoyed a loyal following since then and has introduced many young people to sailing. This is a beautiful sailing location with good breezes coming in from the Chesapeake Bay and also lots of sheltered coves. The fleet here includes 420’s, Optis and an American Sail 14′. The race training week here includes the chance to participate in the ICYCC Junior Regatta on the last day of the course.
