Full Moon Club Sail

This Club Sail typically starts before the sun goes down, so you will get to enjoy a scenic sunset sail on the Bay before sailing by the light of the big beautiful moon and twinkling stars!

Lighted Boat Parade Club Sail
Second Saturday in December, 5:00 - 10:00 PM, $90

The Sausalito Lighted Boat Parade is a holiday tradition in Sausalito and across the Bay Area. Every year, we enter two of our club boats in the parade and our hard-working fleet staff decorate them for our members and guests to participate in this magical experience. We also schedule 3 club boats to carry spectators (one is all ages Family Lighted Boat Parade). With the sounds of holiday music and cheering spectators, you and your guests will be dazzled by the parade of decorated boats and fireworks. An enchanting and memorable event to kick off the season, even the grinchiest of sailors will be unable to resist the holiday cheer. Complimentary snacks, beverages and holiday cookies are provided aboard.

  • John Kratochvil, Oregon

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.

  • Ray Arceneaux

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

  • John Clark

    Every aspect of Modern Sailing - training, syllabus, course materials, quality of the boats, quality of the instructors, and the very friendly and helpful staff - exceeded my expectations. Modern Sailing has a first class sailing program in an environment with challenging winds and currents. I look forward to coming back to charter a boat and certainly plan to continue my sailing training.
