Daylight Saving season ends on November 7, bringing some seasonal changes to chartering at MSC. The changes described below will go into effect on Monday, November 8.
Reduced Rates on Bareboat Charters through March 13
Log lots of on-the-water days for less! As of November 8, bareboat charter rates are about 15% less than summer rates. Check out Our Charter Fleet webpage for pricing details. Summer season rates resume March 14.
Available Booking Types
Full Day (9:00 AM - 8:00 AM next day) bookings are available year-round. Midweek Sunset charters are unavailable as of November 8 and will become available again on March 14.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT NIGHT SAILING
Charterers must have completed ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising certified at Modern Sailing to saill or motor after dark. If you are ASA 103 certified or took ASA 104 at another sailing school and wish to stay aboard overnight, please be docked, moored, or anchored before sunset.
If you took ASA 104 at another school or would like more practice sailing at night, our Night Sailing Clinic can help you gain the skills and confidence to safely navigate in the dark - and will certify you to sail or motor MSC yachts at night. Our Electronic Piloting and Radar Clinic further adds to these skills.
For all reservations after November 7, only 24 hours notice is required to cancel a charter reservation with no late cancellation fee. This gives you greater flexibility in planning your sails around inclement weather forecasts. During the Daylight Saving season, 72 hours notice is required to cancel a charter reservation with no fee. Learn more about our charter policies here: Charter Policies and Definitions.
Year-round, Courses, Clinics, and Club Sails will carry on rain or shine. However, when wind speeds are forecast to be 30 or more knots sustained, conditions are deemed unsafe and we will cancel all on-the-water operations for the day.
