The sailing here is outstanding all year long! Whether you want to learn how to sail or just enjoy
some relaxing time on the water with family and friends, Windward Sailing makes it fun and easy.

We are located in the seaport village of Fernandina Beach, in Northeast Florida, on beautiful Amelia Island —
Florida's northernmost barrier island. Just thirty minutes from Jacksonville International Airport,
Amelia Island has been touted as one of America's top ten destinations.

As we sail out of Fernandina Harbor Marina on the Intracoastal Waterway,
bordering the west side of the island, we enter Cumberland Sound. Dolphins, sea turtles, manatees
and beautiful birds abound. Georgia's Cumberland Island is just minutes from our harbor, where
wild horses, pristine sand dunes, salt marshes and a lush maritime forest invite you to dream and explore.
To the east is the Atlantic Ocean, offering adventurous sailing and breathtaking views.

Our early morning land breezes and afternoon sea breezes, enhanced by occasional strong winds
from the continental weather system, make Amelia Island a true sailor's destination.
Average temperatures in the area range from a low of 42° in the winter to 90° in the summertime.
