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

  • Rolf Zingg

    Since many, many years, I had the dream to sail underneath the Golden Gate bridge. On October 14th last year, my dream became true. Thanks to our dear friend Aaron Fritz who made it possible and organized this cruise for us. With this adventure I was able to achieve one more milestone on my sailing career.

    Finally on the water, it was great! Full moon made the flows even stronger and it was like sailing in a washing machine.

    I did my sailing education in the English Channel, where the situation with the wind and flows is comparable to the San Francisco Bay. So I felt pretty much "at home" being on the helm in the Bay.

    I hope our skipper Stan Lander enjoyed this day cruise too. We, definitely did! It was an unforgettable experience for all of us.

    A very big thank you to all of you who made it possible, that my dream became reality! Also thank you for the MSC flag I got at the end of the day. It found it's place in my study, where I can see it daily.

    The office staff was very accommodating in meeting my availability.

  • 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.
