While on board, racers will rotate through the different stations (skipper, main sail trimmer, jib trimmer, tactician) in order to gain skills and confidence in each role.

The focus of the Recreation Racing League is to have fun, become familiar with racing on SF Bay, and learn all on-board roles.The Summer Race Series includes the Friday Night Races - Corinthian Yacht Club and the Sunset Series - Sausalito Yacht Club. Pre-requisite is ASA 103.

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

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.
