The International Sailing AcademyProviding 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 camps 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.

Training at ISA was the best sailing I have done in my life. On a consistent basis, I was roll tacking in the morning, and hiking hard every afternoon. Working with the Academy coaches, I was able to achieve a greater understanding for racing, starting and planning for regattas.Brenda Bowskill Canadian Olympian Rio 2016
Totally happy. It’s a great program; coaching, boats, facilities, schedule, support services, all superbly organized and executed. And the food is terrific!Bill Symes Portland, OR
One unique aspect of the ISA program is the sense of camaraderie that develops between participants and coaches during the week. All meals are taken together at ISA headquarters, and the on-land coaching sessions are done either with the full group or in several smaller groups, providing plenty of opportunities to share ideas, discuss backgrounds and get to know one another off the water.Sailing World July/August 2014 Edition
The supplied Lasers, rigging area, sailing conditions, and coaching are all first class. There's a large backyard and pool. La Cruz has lots of local restaurants that serve good food at reasonable prices, but there's little need because the food served by the Sailing Academy's Petra is even better.Doug Peckover Masters World Champion and Blogger
The coaching is skill-level appropriate. These guys are good and don’t make you feel awkward about not getting something right away. Our course included guys like me at the bottom of the ladder, right up through sailors who were doing the Masters Worlds.Hugh Jervis BC, Canada
Loved training at the International Sailing Academy in Mexico. Any Laser sailors wanting a good training camp, I definitely recommend this place.Tom Slingsby Olympic Gold Medalist & America’s cup winner
