Sausalito or Berkeley Site Orientation Sails | Modern Sailing

Sausalito or Berkeley Site Orientation Sails

The Site Orientation Sail is an opportunity for members who were certified to charter at one location to get oriented with the unique aspects of sailing out of the other location.

In Berkeley, sailors will learn and practice crosswind docking in a single slip including crew using the lassoing technique with dock lines.

In Sausalito, you’ll learn how to do downwind dockings in a double slip as well as become familiar with the hazards and unique aspects of navigating in and out of the Berkeley Marina.

Upon successful completion of this clinic, members will be qualified to charter out of both locations in accordance with the Fleet Rating that they acheived at one location. The minimum prerequisite for this clinic is Silver Fleet rating or ASA 103 Certification.

Read the Berkeley Orientation Guide or the Sausalito Orientation Guide if you plan on sailing out of either site.

    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.

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

    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.
