Daylight Saving Season - Our favorite time of year is here!

Daylight Saving Season is every sailor's favorite time of year. More hours of sunshine, warmer weather, and stronger, more consistent winds are returning to San Francisco Bay. What are some of the other changes that Modern Sailing members can expect after the clock springs forward one hour?

1) Sunset charters (4:00 - 8:00 PM) are available for reservation during Daylight Saving Season. 

  • Qualified Platinum Fleet members (ASA 104 or Night Sailing Clinic certified) can keep the boat out after sunset to enjoy the magic of sailing the Bay at night.
  • Silver Fleet members must return the boat to dock by twilight.
  • Call our office the morning of your charter. If the boat isn't reserved for a Prime Time charter ahead of your Sunset reservation, you can check in as early as 2:00 PM!
  • Through April 15, 2020, you can purchase your midweek sunset sails in advance and save up to 35% with our Midweek Sunset Specials.

2) Prime Time charter hours shift to 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. (During the winter season, Prime Time charter hours are from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM.)  If you go sailing on a Prime Time charter, be sure to return to dock by 3:00 in order to clean up and disembark by 3:30. This gives our Fleet Staff time to prepare the boat for a Sunset charter.

3) Summer bareboat charter rates are now in effect. Visit our Boats & Rates page for rate details.

4) Après Sails are hosted in the Modern Sailing lounge every Saturday and Sunday from 3:30 to 5:00 PM. After your class or sail, join your friends for complimentary snacks and beverages, including wine and beer! (During the winter season, Après Sails are held on alternating Saturdays or Sundays.)

5) A wider variety and more frequent Club Sails are now available. Wednesday Sunset, TGIF, Jazz by the Bay, Full Moon, and 4th of July Club Sails are open for enrollment now! Opening Day on the Bay Club Sails (April 26) will be added soon. Sign Up Online

    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.

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

  • John Kipping

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.
