The end of Daylight Saving on November 7 brings changes to chartering at MSC

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. 

Cancellation Policy

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.

Multi-Day Charter Discounts Continue

Multi-day charters are discounted 10% for two consecutive days and 15% off for three or more consecutive days. To help you stay cozy on your cool-season multi-day charters, see our article Cozy Winter Chartering - MSC Yachts with Cabin Heaters and Hot Water.

Testimonials

  • Trudy Flores

    Captain Jeff Cathers is really cool. I had such a great time on the Farallones Day Trip. It was actually my very best day of 2020. Thank you so much for coordinating the trip.

  • Casey Bishop, Corporate Regatta

    WE LOVED IT! The whole team was so honored and thankful. Thanks so much for all of your team's hard work and excellence in organizing our party. Of the 22 of us, only 4 had ever been sailing and not in the Bay. The guys had an incredible experience, the skippers were all really great, allowing each of us to be at the wheel. They were kind and empowering. Plus the weather and wind were perfect! It was definitely one of the top 3 experiences that we have shared as leaders in the past 5 + years. We couldn't have asked for a better day!

  • 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.
