The International Sailing Academy

Providing the Best Sailing Training Camps on the Planet

At ISA, you’ll find the best training opportunity for all Laser sailors. We achieve this by providing exceptional accommodations, delicious meals, new equipment and world-class coaching.

We now also offer clinics, lessons and charters in our 26′ keelboat, for all skill levels from beginner to advanced, with the same level of coaching and accommodations that our Laser program is famous for.

Here in La Cruz, you’ll sail in a daily afternoon sea breeze with sessions timed for train in flat or wavy waters; light or heavy air; while one of our top coaches will help you raise your game. We hope you’ll discover why so many have called this the best place they’ve ever sailed.
