LMSS Race Teams

Designed for intermediate and advanced sailors who are looking to gain race experience

Recreational Sailing

Learn to sail summer camp classes tailored for students who have little or no sailing experience

Safety, Our First Priority

All LMSS Instructors have received Red Cross First-Aid and CPR training. Lead staff members are US Sailing certified. All students and staff are required to wear a PFD at all times when in and near the water. LMSS works to keep instructor-to-student ratios low.

At LMSS, we offer a progression of classes to fit the needs of every student at any age, ability, or experience level. Our program is organized into two tracks: Recreational Sailing and LMSS Race Teams. Sailors are encouraged to advance through these tracks as their skills improve.

Our path to sailing success

  • Recreational Sailing

    Designed for students who have little or no experience, or who want to enjoy a noncompetitive environment. These classes cover the basics of sailing, allowing students to gain confidence on the water and develop relationships with other sailors their age. Learn more.

  • LMSS Race Teams

    Designed for intermediate and advanced sailors who have previous race experience, the LMSS Race Teams have a mix of practices at LMSS and dedicated coaching at regattas to maximize improvement and meet individual goals. Learn more.

Your Donation Matters

Contributions to LMSS, a 501(c)(3) organization, sustain scholarship opportunities and ongoing equipment purchases such as, but not limited to, sailboats, coach boats, and sails. It is because of this community support that we are able to provide safe and affordable classes for each and every one of our sailors.

My kids have been attending LMSS for the past 5 years, they look forward to it every summer, great staff!


Five Stars!


You all have done an outstanding job. Thank you to you and all of the wonderful teachers.


We love the STEM camp!


At LMSS, I’ve learned lifelong skills and made lifelong friends.


Our girls have both become more independent and confident because of LMSS. These skills translate into all areas of life. Amazing experience!

Our sailor learned so much and he’s incredibly proud. LMSS is a really special place.
