Cyrus and Viraf Heerjee

We have been helping people in Mumbai to get into the wonderful sport of sailing since the last 35 years, by conducting learn to sail courses and then guiding students to join a sailing club, enabling them to continue their adventures on sea.

Our unique teaching techniques and course syllabus is developed by our founder Cyrus Heerjee, who has 40+ years of sailing experience, during which he has trained more than 500 sailors across India. He has been on numerous voyages to Goa, Maldives and also the historic sail to Muscat on a Seabird class sailboat. He has also won several national sailing events in the Seabird, Lightning and Enterprise class dinghy.

At Fair Winds Sailing School, we use top quality boats and equipment for our courses which makes the learning experience safe, fun and easy. Practical sailing classes are conducted on the Seabird class sailboat, which is the most ideal boat to learn sailing. For the theory course, we take a multimedia approach by using videos, power-point presentations, course books, lectures etc.

Our mission is to promote sailing in Mumbai by providing opportunities to individuals of all ages to learn and enjoy sailing.
