You've found the web home of Yaquina Bay Sailing School and other Marine Services offered by Capt. Mike Fulmor here in Beautiful Newport Oregon. If it is your desire to have an introductory sail, learn basic sailing skills in small group lessons (2-3 students), get private instruction or coaching on your boat or mine, get help evaluating boats for sale, learn about the systems on your new boat, get advanced nautical training, scatter ashes at sea, get married aboard, get help delivering your boat somewhere, or whatever else you might need involving sailboats or sailing, this is the place on the central Oregon Coast.
While ours is not an official American Sailing Association school, Capt. Mike is an ASA certified instructor up to the Advanced Coastal Cruising level, and your instruction will be the same as other schools offer at about half the price they normally charge.
