$185 for a Two-Day Basic Keelboat-Sailing I Course (a $375 Value)

Two-day courses during weekdays and weekends begin with a quick introduction before boat captains take up to four sailors through the basic safety procedures necessary to navigate a Santana 22 keelboat. Then students get hands-on experience in steering and raising sails during lessons, which take place almost entirely on the water and can prepare students for American Sailing Association certification in basic keelboat sailing. Lessons take place between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on the first and third weekend of every month.

Spinnaker Sailing

Spinnaker Sailing’s crew helps people to experience the San Francisco Bay providing lessons, yacht and sailboat charters, and fractional- sailing boat-sharing memberships. During lessons, staffers challenge students to turn theory into hands-on action, using American Sailing Association guidelines to transform landlubbers into landlubbers who can sail. For those who prefer to outsource steering, Spinnaker Sailing’s captains load up to six passengers for private cruises aboard skippered 30- to 50-foot yachts. Parties can request to sail around Angel Island or stop in at Sam’s in Tiburon to grab drinks or dinner. Meanwhile, Spinnaker Fractional members share luxury Beneteau boats, indulging in the benefits of boat ownership without being bogged down with the cost of insurance, fees, and vessel upkeep.
