Development Clinics

One Day, 9am - 3:30pm

Dust off your topsiders and come join us for a one-day tune-up to refresh all the essential skills that are easy to forget if you haven't been sailing on a regular basis.

There are three different clinics to choose from, each designed to accomodate different skill levels and goals. Not sure where you fit in?  We would be happy to help you - email us or give us a call at (415) 331-8250.

Silver Fleet Development + Platinum Fleet Development + Catamaran Refresher Clinics

Have you recently taken ASA 101, ASA 103, or ASA 104 and need more time on the water to solidify your skills, or has it been awhile since you last sailed? If any of the scenarios below apply to you, a Development Clinic is for you!

  • The student has successfully completed the course and would like more practice to increase his or her confidence prior to chartering.
  • The student’s instructor has recommended more practice in one or more skill areas in order for the student to successfully complete the course or check-out and receive certification.
  • Some time has passed since earning certification and the student would like a refresher of the essential skills.

This clinic will include the practice of docking, steering, and sail trim on various points of sail, reefing, crew overboard recovery procedures, heaving-to, and standing turn maneuvers.

    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.

  • Mike, Santa Rosa, California

    All of the courses and my instructors (JT and Stan) were extremely professional and full of knowledge and experience. I found I was able to learn from their experiences beyond the scope of the courses, and look forward to future opportunities to do so. I would highly recommend Modern Sailing to anyone.

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

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