Half Moon Bay Trip

Modern Sailing members sail Coho II, a Spencer 44, out the Golden Gate and down to Half Moon Bay on a Modern Sailing Expeditions Trip.

Weekend Trip, 2.5 days and 2 nights

Have you been dreaming of a coastal cruising adventure close to home that you can fit into a single weekend? Join MSC for a sail down the coast to Half Moon Bay!

This two-night expedition starts at MSC base at 4:00 PM on Friday evening to provision, plan the course, do a safety briefing, and meet the crew. Sleep aboard the night before to prepare for an early departure on Saturday morning. 

Once out the gate, you’ll spend the day sailing downwind, watching for whales, and surfing ocean swells. Upon arrival at Half Moon Bay, the crew can venture ashore to dine at one of the many seaside restaurants like Sam's Chowder House that boast fresh catches and local delights. Other evening activities include a walk down the beach or enjoying a night cap at local favorites, Ketch Joann Restaurant and Harbor Bar or the Half Moon Bay Brewing Company. After breakfast on Sunday, we will make our way back up the coast, aiming to arrive at MSC base in time to clean up and disembark before sunset.

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.

    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!

    We just took our ASA 106 at a school in Rhode Island as we prepare for 6 months of cruising in the Caribbean. The class was great, but more than anything it made us really appreciate the quality of teaching and rigor at Modern Sailing. Even though we were the newest to sailing, the group seemed to think that we had the best fundamentals. We felt very well prepared and we see why Modern Sailing has the reputation it does.
