WIND & WOMEN - Women's Sailing Courses and Race Team!

Introducing Wind & Women

Modern Sailing School & Club is excited to announce Wind & Women - our women’s sailing program launching in Spring 2019! While we believe that anyone can learn from any of our excellent instructors, we are eager to create a supportive and encouraging program where women support women in reaching their sailing goals.

Women Take the Helm

The legacy of women in sailing dates back to the 1700s with infamous pirates Anna Bonney and Hannah Reed aboard the pirate sloop Revenge. Throughout history, women have been making their mark in the sailing community, setting circumnavigation records, leading all-female race teams and making it clear that the sea is a big enough challenge for both men and women. From Krystyna Chojnowska-Liskiewicz, the first woman to circumnavigate the world, to Laura Dekker - the youngest, and Jeanne Socrates - the oldest, female sailors have been adding their finesse to sailing for centuries. (To read more about cool women sailors, see A History of Women in Sailing and 13 Top Female Sailors.)

Learn to Sail on San Francisco Bay

Wind & Women is focused on building this legacy and growing the community of female sailors who make the Bay Area their home. Taught by Captain Kira Maixner, courses accommodate all skill levels providing an inclusive and open atmosphere for learning how to sail confidently. Even the unique biomechanics of the female body means taking a different approach to moving around the boat and powering up the sails. Take the helm, hone your skills, and skipper like a pro - join Wind & Women and sign up for one of our American Sailing Association courses in 2019!

Wind & Women Race Team

The Wind & Women program includes an all-women race team! To join the Wind & Women Race Team, first complete the co-ed Recreational Race Clinic, then sign up for Wind & Women races.

There are three ways to sign up for Wind & Women courses and races - call (415) 331-8250, email us, or check our schedule and enroll online.

Pricing for Wind & Women courses and races is the same as for co-ed courses and races.
 

 

 

Testimonials

  • Ray Arceneaux

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
