Choose Between Two Options

Through a combination of hands-on learning and classroom training, ASA-affiliate instructors impart sailing basics such as tacking, jibbing, steering, wind recognition, docking, knots, and terminology. Each lesson is limited to four students and may be taken as a stand-alone introductory sailing course or as the first of a two-part course that leads to a basic keelboat certification. The class runs from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. over two consecutive days and includes two hours of classroom instruction, four hours on the water, and a lunch break each day. See the schedule for class times, as well as Spinnaker Sailing’s FAQ page for what to bring.

Spinnaker Sailing

Saltwater runs through the veins of the passionate instructors at Spinnaker Sailing. Attuned to the winds and waves of the San Francisco Bay, they've taught aspiring sailors how to navigate the waters with lessons that emphasize both skill and safety. The team also maintains an affiliation with the American Sailing Association, upholding high training standards as they show all levels of sailors, including kids, how to captain watercraft from keelboats to coastal cruisers.

In addition to helping sailors obtain ASA certifications, Spinnaker Sailing oversees a sailing club, as well as coordinate local charters, skippered cruises, and sailing vacations to storied destinations such as Tahiti and Valhalla. The fleet, which includes 22- to 40-foot yachts, launches into the waters of San Francisco bay from Redwood City Marina.
