Modern Sailing School & Club is the premier sailing school on the West Coast. We have been teaching adults how to sail on the San Francisco Bay and internationally since 1983. Our personable and experienced professionals provide the highest level of instruction on the San Francisco Bay and California coast. Courses and specialty clinics are taught year-round, during the week and on the weekend.
In August, Inspire Sailing ran their first-ever Introduction to Sport Boats Clinic and two MSC club members, Anne Trott and Sterling Watson came along for a complimentary test drive. Anne and Sterling share their experience of the clinic and learning to sail the exciting J/24.
MSC instructors Laura Parent, Katie Cornetta, and Kira Maixner participated as crew in this year's Rolex Big Boat Series. See photos of their teams and boats and read about their BBS race experience in their own words.
Prior to joining MSC, Timmy harbored an intense fascination with sailboats and sailing, which he indulged by insatiably consuming videos and books on the subject - but he’d never sailed before. Four years later, Timmy is embarking on the adventure of a lifetime - sailing the world with his wife Ari Davalos and their Chihuahua Papi on a boat of their own.
Last spring, three of MSC's Wind & Women instructors met up with Sømand, a women's sailing clothing company recently founded by two Bay Area women sailors.
