Buzzards Sailing School
Sailing: Learn it. Do it. Love it! The Buzzards Sailing School, Inc. (BSS) is a non-profit, community sailing school for youth ages 8 to 18. Our mission is to inspire young people, teach them to master the art of sailing and instill a love of the sport. All of our classes emphasize fun and enjoyment on the water as well as water safety and the learning of sailing skills. Graduates of this program have sailed across oceans, cruised distant coasts, captained traditional schooners and raced high-tech boats in local, collegiate, national and international competitions. Still other students come from India, Belgium, Ireland, Spain, Austria and Kuwait to spend a week or more in our program. The goal of the program is to provide students a fun and safe summer experience built around developing sailing, racing, teamwork and seamanship skills. By learning and doing, young sailors will develop a lifelong love of sailing. The summer of 2018 will be our 53rd year.
We are located at 99 South Road on Wings Neck in Pocasset, Massachusetts.
Help Us Out!
Recycle for Buzzards! Save your plastic jugs like Iced Tea, detergent or canola oil with handles and their caps, to use to bail the boats. Our fleet regularly needs replacements. A large blue container with the sign "Bailers" is just inside the clubhouse
