We Are Sailing Club Panama

 We are a group of passionate sailors and sea lovers that run a sailing school in Saboga Island, in the Pearl Island archipelago.

 We design activities for all ages, needs and dreams!

 We work flexibly with you to fulfil your desires, which can range from sailing around the virgin islands of the archipelago, learning how to sail, windsurf, SUP or skimboard, enjoying a few days of water activities with a group of friends or family.

 We work with schools and with business providing them great sailing and sustainable experiences.

 We work closely with the local community of the island on different activities we organise.

 We love sustainability so everything we do we do it taking care of the environment around us.
