Member Events

Members of Modern Sailing School and Club set sail on a group sailing trip on San Francisco Bay.

Member Only Club Sails

Maintain your sailing skills and meet new friends - Join a club sail!  Weekend club sails are fun, informal and skippered by members of the club who are both friendly and supportive. The sails are scheduled for either Saturdays or Sundays. All experience levels are welcome. Experience and practice all aspects of managing a boat and crew for your own bareboat charters. Crew members are encouraged to assist the skipper with the sail.

There are three ways to sign up for a Club Sail - by phone (415) 331 - 8250, email, or online by clicking here.

BBQs and Parties

We take our celebrations very seriously. During the warmer months our members, students and their guests enjoy BBQ’s and themed parties. A delicious assortment of food including main dishes, salads, desserts, vegetarian options and a variety of beverages are set out. In the winter months we continue the fun with parties, hot spiced apple cider, hot cocoa, chili and soup days with gourmet sandwiches, and we have breakfast events throughout the year.

Join our “Get Connected” events and enjoy frosty Margaritas and delicious appetizers while meeting other members. This is a great way to find crew for upcoming sails or to join a charter as crew. Spending time at our many celebrations is a great way for members to unwind after a great sail and meet new friends.

Full Moon Sails

Enjoy a Full Moon sail with friends and members. The sail typically starts before the sun goes down, so you not only get a big beautiful moon, but the incredible sunset too! This sail is informal and skippered by a member who is friendly and supportive. All experience levels are welcome, and everyone is encouraged to assist with sailing the boat.


As a club, we strive to provide an active, supportive, and relaxing social environment for our members to further their sailing education and experience. Our flotillas are a perfect opportunity for you to practice your sailing skills either on San Francisco Bay or in exotic waters with the support and social camaraderie of a group. You will confidently be able to bring family for friends along, knowing that there is support all around you. Even if you have extensive cruising experience, you will enjoy the group dynamics and social flavor of sailing in a flotilla.

    I would like to compliment Stan Lander for his coaching, counseling and teaching Heavy Weather Offshore Sailing. Stan was very accommodating to all of the student's interests and shared his many years of insight on handling the boat in heavy seas. I would certainly recommend Stan and this course to sheltered waters sailors. My confidence in handling a boat of this size was certainly enhanced by the experience.

    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.

  • John Boynton

    The class was terrific. I know you must get many compliments about your sailing instructors...But I must tell you that Robert is outstanding. Having taught SCUBA, I really appreciate the way he is so sensitive to all on board, dealing with each so well, knowing quickly their strengths and weaknesses making each feel special and cared for.
