The best choice for Sailing on San Francisco Bay
Modern Sailing School & Club has been introducing people to sailing from our headquarters in Sausalito, California since 1983. Even if you have never set foot on a boat, we can teach you everything you need to know to build a strong foundation in this rewarding and life long sport.
MSC is dedicated to making your learning experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. All of our beginning courses are taught on 30 - 32 foot keelboats with wheel steering (no tillers), inboard diesel engines, and roller furling jibs. These features will help build confidence right away.
Our experienced and friendly instructors hold US Coast Guard Licenses, representing decades of sailing experience. They are award winning instructors, world cruisers, and Coast Guard Commanders. Our high standards have earned us acolades in the sailing community, including the American Sailing Association's School of the Year Award.
