             Welcome  to Bonneville School of Sailing

Now in our 17th year sailing on Utah Lake, the Bonneville School of Sailing and Seamanship has seen many of it's graduates and participants go on to sail distant oceans, purchase their own boats and live their sailing dreams, build a boat with family members, or discover the wonders of Celestial Navigation.

Our guests have been entertained with crimson and gold sunsets surrounded by the peace and the unique quiet only a sailboat can bring. The personal transformations from team-building events to adrenaline-pumping racing and spinnaker clinics are acclaimed as life-altering experiences. Now it's your turn. Let's go sailing!

Mark Twain said it best in this short paragraph: "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Bonneville School of Sailing collaborates with NauticEd to provide our students with 21st Century sailing education, training and certification.  NauticEd is a fully accredited sailing education program recognized by yacht charter companies worldwide.                

Bonneville School of Sailing is a
U.S. Sailing Accredited School.
Learn To Sail

This is what started it all for Bonneville. We love to sail and want to share that experience with you. If you want to see if sailing is for you or your dream is to sail the Mediterranean, we can help you. Join us and experience the freedom and joy of sailing.


Blue Water Cruises

Experience blue water sailing. Join us on a Cruises to Catalina. Enjoy a fun and unique vacation or prepare for a charter you are dreaming of. This is the perfect time to learn all the big boat systems on a 40’ catamaran or a 45' monohull.


Special guest instructors are brought in for intensive specialty clinics. Spinnaker handling, MOB techniques, sail trim, racing, anchoring, night sailing, and navigation. Clinics are held aboard our Olson 30, Catalina 270, and Catalina 27. These are fast, responsive, and well-maintained vessels where you can “push the envelope”, feel safe, and broaden your sailing skills.

Social Sailing

Geared for enjoyment & relaxation, our clients come back from these two-hour sails with a newfound appreciation of how quiet and calming sailing can be. Escape the “metro-cooker”, and trade in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, for a pink and gold sunset behind Lake Mountain. Take the tiller if you want to...

Utah Lake

In the 1800s, Lake Timpanogos was a source of food for pioneers coming into the valley, as well as a gathering place for Ute Indian tribes. Now known as Utah Lake, our clients sail on this beautiful, challenging and easily accessible body of water referred to as the "3rd largest, naturally occurring fresh water lake west of the Mississippi”.
