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

  • 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.

  • Molie M

    After complete two courses and having a variety of instructors, I can safely say, this is place to go if you want to learn to sail. The fleet is equally diverse and exciting. The office staff does a great job of getting you plugged into the sailing community. Fantastic group of folks!

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

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