Sailing Skills Clinics for New and Returning Sailors
Sailing on San Francisco Bay is a challenging and exhilarating experience. Our extensive fleet of yachts ranging from 30 - 42 ft. offers a range of vessels for every skill level. If you are new to sailing, haven’t been at the helm in a while, or want to brush up on chartering and best practices, an Introductory Sail or Refresher Course is for you.
If you are comfortable with our Silver Fleet, have the required on-the-water experience, and are prepared to upgrade your San Francisco sailing experience, it’s time to take an upgrade clinic. The Gold Fleet Upgrade Clinic readies you to handle boats ranging from 33-37 ft. safely.
In-Depth Sailing Skills Clinics
Practice makes perfect - and that’s never been more accurate than polishing a sailing skill. In collaboration with our skilled and knowledgeable Captains, we have developed several sailing skills clinics to help both intermediate and advanced sailors alike.
