NEW! Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30 Membership Program

Pay less to play more! 

Modern Sailing and Inspire Sailing are excited to offer a membership program to make it easier for you to enjoy sailing more frequently – our new Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30 Membership! Pay no additional cost when you charter Inspire Sailing’s sport boats under 30 feet – as often as you want. As a bonus, your Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30 Membership automatically includes Dual Site Membership with Modern Sailing and Inspire Sailing. You’ll gain access to more boats, more variety, and more fun!

If sailing regularly is one of your favorite ways to enjoy an active lifestyle in the great outdoors, this program is for you.

Inspire Sailing's Sport Boat <30 charter rates currently range from $150 (1/2 Day Weekday) to $260 (Full Day Weekend). When you charter a sport boat for a full day on a weekend at least once a month as an Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30 club member, you receive an outstanding value for your membership. The more often you sail, the greater the value!

Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30 Membership Program Details

How can I book the boats at Inspire Sailing?

Make your reservations via an Online Portal, by email, or calling the customer service team.

How many bookings can I make?

All members (Classic and Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30) can hold a maximum of 3 future charter reservations.

Are there any black-out dates?

No. All days are open to both Classic and Unlimited Sailing memberships, except for regularly scheduled holiday closures.

Do Unlimited Sailing members get priority over classic members?

Classic and Unlimited Sailing reservation requests are processed on a first-come, first-served basis.

What if I need to cancel a reservation?

If you need to cancel a reservation, please notify our office 72 hours or more in advance of your reservation. When cancelling with less than 72 hours’ notice, Classic and Unlimited Sailing members pay a late cancellation fee that is 50% of the boat’s charter rate. (The late cancellation window is 24 hours in the winter months).

What if I can’t book a boat because there are never any available?

Inspire Sailing is restricting the number of Unlimited Sailing memberships based on the size of the Sport Boat <30 Fleet. If there is extended period of no availability for bookings, there will be an active effort to increase the number of boats in the Sport Boat <30 Fleet.

What kind of commitment is involved with the Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30 Membership?

A 6-month contract is required. Early termination fees of $250 will apply if you wish to cancel the membership before the contact end date.
 

Additional Program FAQs

What vessels are in the Sport Boat <30 Fleet?

Inspire Sailing currently has 11 vessels in the Sport Boat <30 Fleet. Ten of these are J24s and one is a J80. Visit the Vessels in Fleet page on Inspire Sailing's website to see photos and details about these fun boats.

How do I know which membership type is right for me?

  • The Unlimited Sailing membership is the equivalent of the Classic monthly membership plus one J24 Full Day Weekend charter per month. If you think you will charter at least once a month this membership is a perfect fit!
  • Unlimited Sailing is great for recent ASA 103, Basic Coastal Cruising graduates who are building their experience to prepare for ASA 104, Bareboat Cruising. Remember that you will need to complete a Sport Boat Certification Clinic or Evaluation Sail at Inspire Sailing to get certified to charter the <30 sport boats.
  • Unlimited Sailing is ideal for members who want to frequently take friends out without worrying about the cost of the charter - it’s already paid for!
  • The Unlimited Sailing membership is perfect for the “spontaneous sailor” or those of us with unpredictable schedules… because, again, the cost of chartering is already paid for!

How do I get started with an Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30 Membership?

Call the Inspire Sailing office team at (510) 831-1800. You can convert an existing membership to an Unlimited Sailing Sport Boat <30 Membership as early as July 1, 2022.

Testimonials

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

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

  • 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 Kipping

    The meeting room was quite adequate and the location most convenient, but the course outline and instruction were outstanding. Modern Sailing is fortunate to have such a well organized instructor in Mr. Stan Lander who teaches very well from a rich professional background. Mr. Lander was generous with his time and patiently in helping students who needed more attention or time in understanding various aspects of the curriculum.
