If you are looking for a sailing school in Rhode Island, or even Connecticut, LOOK NO FURTHER! No other sailing school in our region will come close to the quality of instruction that Black Rock will provide for you! Our track record is second to none! Browse available courses and learn more about our location below.


Location, location, location: We are thrilled that our second full-service sailing school in Warwick, Rhode Island is attracting folks who live all over New England and areas as far away as California, Canada, and Mexico!  Our multi-media classroom and top-notch marina facilities at Safe Harbor Marina, Cowesett are located in the heart of picturesque Narragansett Bay. Both Warwick and East Greenwich, RI have extremely active sailing communities, and Black Rock is excited to be able to introduce new sailors to this incredible sailing venue.

Narragansett Bay is renowned for its dependable winds, numerous scenic and protected harbors, and relatively light boating traffic. These waters have become a favorite location for our instructors to teach ASA 101 Basic Keelboat, ASA 103 Basic Coastal Cruising, and ASA 104 Bareboat Charter Certification. Most of our Adventure Cruising “courses” will be departing from this location as well.

Convenience: Unlike our competition, our location is only 7 minutes off of I-95, 30 minutes from the Connecticut border, and 15 minutes from downtown Providence.  Easy in – easy out! Our location also provides instant access to sailable waters – providing our customers with at least 30 minutes of additional sailing time per day!

TF Green airport is only a few miles north of us, so there are plenty of inexpensive hotels within 10 minutes of our marina – or of course, students can sleep aboard our Hunter 36 whenever this option is available.

Value: We are positive that no other sailing school in Rhode Island (or New England for that matter) matches the quality and value that Black Rock Sailing School delivers. Compare us to other Rhode Island sailing schools and you will find our sailing lessons are second to none!
