Sailing Clinics and Short Lessons

Register for a sailing clinic to make the most of every day on the water. At Modern Sailing School and Club, we are committed to your sailing education and ensuring your confidence on the water. From docking and sail trim to mooring and electronics, we’ll help you become a better sailor and hone your skills.

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 large range of vessels suitable for every skill level. If you are new to sailing, haven’t been at the helm in a while or just 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 prepares you to safely handle boats in the size range of 33-37 ft.

In-Depth Sailing Skills Clinics

Practice makes perfect - and it’s never been more true 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.

Learn how to properly trim your sails when you take the Mastering Sail Trim, Light Wind Sailing Techniques, or Mastering Cruising Asymmetrical Spinnaker clinics. Impress your friends when you pick up a mooring ball on the first try at Angel Island after taking the Angel Island Mooring Clinic. Advance your sailing skills even further with Heavy Weather Sailing, or the Electronic Piloting and Radar Clinic.

American Sailing Association Certified Docking Clinic

Modern Sailing is proud to offer ASA 118  - the Docking Endorsement. This one day clinic will help you better understand how to dock your boat in any situation. Take a closer look at propwalk and the effects of the current and wind on you boat while docking in a slip or alongside any dock.

Testimonials

  • Molie M

    After complete two courses and having a variety of instructors, I can safely say, this is place to go if you want to learn to sail. The fleet is equally diverse and exciting. The office staff does a great job of getting you plugged into the sailing community. Fantastic group of folks!

  • 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.

  • Steve Hood, Basic Coastal Cruising

    I would definitely recommend Modern Sailing to anyone who is interested in learning to sail the right way.
