Welcome to KSEA

The Kollegewidgwok Sailing Education Association (KSEA) is a non-profit sailing school serving Blue Hill and the surrounding region. Each summer, we offer classes for beginners to advanced sailors, for children and adults. All of our sailing instructors are U.S. Sailing Level 1 Instructor certified, and many have their Level 2 certification.

The KSEA Sailing School season begins with Community Sailing Week - a week of introductory sailing classes open to beginners of all ages. Our regular program of rowing, Optimist and 420 sailing classes begins in late June and runs into mid-August.  See below for this year's calendar.
