San Francisco Bay Area Sailing Careers

Join Our Team

Modern Sailing School & Club is the premier sailing school on the West Coast. We have been teaching adults how to sail on the San Francisco Bay and internationally since 1983. Our personable and experienced professionals provide the highest level of instruction on the San Francisco Bay and California coast. Courses and specialty clinics are taught year-round, during the week and on the weekend.

Our sailing school is certified by the ASA (American Sailing Association) and is an authorized Coast Guard Licensing Facility. Our Yacht Management Services ensure that our fleet is professionally maintained. Modern Sailing also offers and organizes Skippered Charters, Corporate Regatta team building events, Global Destinations international adventure trips, and an active Recreational Race Program.

Need a job and love to sail? Join the friendly and supportive Modern Sailing community as one of our valued team members! Our staff enjoys leisure sails together, employee celebrations and BBQs, discounts on marine supplies and vendors, complimentary ASA courses, sailing clinics, and other educational opportunities. We are currently hiring Customer Service Representatives, Fleet Service Specialists, and ASA Instructors.

Do you have your captain's license, or are you qualified to become licensed? Complete your ASA Instructor Qualification Clinics at Modern Sailing and join our team of highly respected professionals! Our instructors receive 100% tuition reimbursement for each clinic after teaching their first course at that level (e.g., reimbursed for ASA 201 after teaching one complete ASA 101 course).

If you don't have your Captain's License yet, we host USCG Captain's License courses twice a year, in the spring and in the fall - right around the same time as our ASA Instructor Qualification Clinics. Learn more about USCG Captain's License Courses at Modern Sailing.

Testimonials

  • Alisa Driscoll, Dual Site Member

    Here are some snaps of Our Saturday, August 20, 2022 Modern Sailing Expedition with Captain Robert Bivin, who was outstanding. Please convey photos and thanks to him. He is an outstanding individual, leader and sailing instructor. His knowledge and experience made us all feel safe and our Farallones Day Trip educational and just amazing.

    I took ASA 101 with them recently. They have the best customer service I've ever seen! I mistyped my address when I signed up online so didn't receive the textbook. I called and the lady immediately sent me another copy! Everyone at the club is super friendly.

  • Warren Leiden, Member

    I try to get out on the water every week: out the Gate, around Angel, up Raccoon - I love it all. After 18 years as a member of OCSC in Berkeley, I learned to sail the bigger boats at Modern by taking ASA 103 and 104. My ASA 104 instructor Dave Russell was terrific. Also, Captain Bill Moreland has been very generous in giving informal advice whenever I’ve asked him. Thanks to Bill, I no longer have any anxiety about docking!
