HISTORY & MISSION

OUR HISTORY

Under the visionary leadership of Jeanne and Jeff Sinclair, kids and adults started sailing out of the Black Eagle Marina in coastal Rincón in fall of 2007. For the first few years, the business was mobile, with boats on trailers. In 2010, Rincón Sailing secured our current location at the Club Nautico de Rincón.   Click here for a bit more history.
