I try to get out on the water every week: out the Gate, around Angel, up Raccoon - I love it all. After 18 years as a member of OCSC in Berkeley, I learned to sail the bigger boats at Modern by taking ASA 103 and 104. My ASA 104 instructor Dave Russell was terrific. Also, Captain Bill Moreland has been very generous in giving informal advice whenever I’ve asked him. Thanks to Bill, I no longer have any anxiety about docking!
Year after year, we look forward to bringing this delightful event to our members with Lighted Boat Parade Club Sails. This year, 5 boats loaded with 37 MSC members and their guests enjoyed participating in this magical holiday experience.
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.
