Night Sailing Clinic

Night sailing can be an enchanting experience. The many lights and reflections sparkling on the water are beautiful but can disorient sailors inexperienced with piloting a boat in the dark. Learn to safely enjoy the beauty of sailing at night by joining our Night Sailing Clinic!

Hands-on learning and practice on the water under the guidance of a USCG licensed instructor will strengthen your confidence during nighttime outings. Learn to recognize aids to navigation and vessel navigation lights, anchor, check and adjust sail trim, and utilize safety equipment at night. In the process, you’ll get oriented with navigating San Francisco Bay in the dark.

This clinic will also certify bareboat charterers to be underway after sunset.

Cost for Members: 
Cost for Non Members: 
Sportboat Fleet Rated OR Silver Fleet Rated, or equivalent experience.

    The Full Moon Sail with Skipper Bob Gutsgell was Ah-Mayzing!! The group dynamic was lovely and the views spectacular. I can't say enough good things about the experience. Thanks so much for the wonderful Club Sails, they are really great.

    I started sailing at Modern at the end of 2021 and threw myself into it, spending as much time out on the water as I could. I came to Modern with some flat water dinghy sailing experience and it was quite a transition learning to sail bigger boats in much tougher conditions. There was a lot to learn, but the Modern instructors, Club Skippers and fellow Modern sailors made learning fun and rewarding. My Modern instructors were clearly very experienced sailors and sailing with them was inspiring! I want to thank the maintenance crew and office staff for their dedication and hard work - you are the folks who make things work! There is a lot more to learn and I look forward to sailing with Modern for years to come.

    It has been wonderful sailing with MSC over the years. Please extend my thanks to the owners, management, and staff for unrequited professionalism and high standards in a charter fleet. I have sailed with several in my years and none nearly hold a candle to the quality of business and staff at Modern Sailing.
