Welcome

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 lifelong sport.

MSC is dedicated to making your learning experience as safe and enjoyable as possible.  All of our beginner-level 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 and represent decades of sailing experience. They are award winning instructors, world cruisers, and Coast Guard Commanders. Our high standards have earned us accolades in the sailing community, including the American Sailing Association's School of the Year Award.

Testimonials

  • John Boynton

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.

  • Emma & George Stubbs, Sausalito

    We just took our ASA 106 at a school in Rhode Island as we prepare for 6 months of cruising in the Caribbean. The class was great, but more than anything it made us really appreciate the quality of teaching and rigor at Modern Sailing. Even though we were the newest to sailing, the group seemed to think that we had the best fundamentals. We felt very well prepared and we see why Modern Sailing has the reputation it does.

  • Sara Jane G.

    I've taken two classes at MSS&C and was very happy with the program. This is also a great club with lots of opportunities for camaraderie and practice on the water. The boats in the fleet are fantastic and kept in tip-top shape. I highly recommend for all sailors and would-be sailors!
