About Nautilus Sailing

Nautilus Sailing is an award winning American Sailing Association school. In 2011 and 2012, Nautilus Sailing was chosen as a Top 20 sailing school, out of more than 300 ASA schools worldwide (sadly the ASA discontinued that award after 2012!)

We pride ourselves in having excellent instructors, using the best sailboats available, and offering our courses in some of the most spectacular cruising locations in the world. We prefer getting a little off the beaten track, and leaving room for adventure, as we help people learn to sail.

Nautilus headquarters is currently located in Crested Butte, Colorado. “Colorado?” you might well ask! Yes, we know there isn’t an ocean in Colorado. The beauty of the internet is that offices can be based anywhere. We spend our time teaching sailing in tropical destinations around the world, so decided to run things from a little mountain town, high in the Rockies. When we are not working we love enjoying the skiing, mountain biking, hiking, backpacking and all the amazing outdoor pursuits this area has to offer!
