Sailing Vacations and Global Destinations

Discover the customs of Tahitian locals or tour Croatian vineyards by day and retire to your luxurious sailboat every evening. Each year, Modern Sailing plans flotillas to exquisite sailing destinations worldwide. Each boat in the Floatilla is lead by one of our skilled Captains. For sailors who wish to expand their skill set and skipper their own yacht, bareboat options are available.  

Beyond the Golden Gate Bridge with Modern Sailing Expeditions

Our Coastal Expeditions gives you a closer look at the Pacific Coast. Known for its rugged coastline and large swell and big winds, Northern California offers exciting and challenging conditions for new and seasoned sailors alike. Modern Sailing Expeditions are open to members and non-members alike and are planned, provisioned and skippered by one of our USCG Captains and a first mate.

During a Modern Sailing Expedition, you’ll sail under the Golden Gate Bridge and explore the coastal cities and geography North, West, and South of the Golden Gate Straits. Popular excursions include multi-day trips to Halfmoon Bay, Drakes Bay, and Bodega Bay. One-day trips to the famed Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary occur monthly.

Destination Sailing for Every Level

For Global Destinations and MSC Expeditions, no experience is necessary. Those new to sailing can explore the world from the water knowing that an experienced and licensed captain is at the helm.

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.

  • Rolf Zingg

    Since many, many years, I had the dream to sail underneath the Golden Gate bridge. On October 14th last year, my dream became true. Thanks to our dear friend Aaron Fritz who made it possible and organized this cruise for us. With this adventure I was able to achieve one more milestone on my sailing career.

    Finally on the water, it was great! Full moon made the flows even stronger and it was like sailing in a washing machine.

    I did my sailing education in the English Channel, where the situation with the wind and flows is comparable to the San Francisco Bay. So I felt pretty much "at home" being on the helm in the Bay.

    I hope our skipper Stan Lander enjoyed this day cruise too. We, definitely did! It was an unforgettable experience for all of us.

    A very big thank you to all of you who made it possible, that my dream became reality! Also thank you for the MSC flag I got at the end of the day. It found it's place in my study, where I can see it daily.
