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 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 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

  • Esther C

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.

  • Ray Arceneaux

    The vessel was clean and in fine condition - very nice boat for training, well-equipped.

  • Danny Collins
