Adult Instructions


Learn To Sail CFJ Class

Want to go back to summer camp? This is your chance! This summer we will be offering a one week adult ‘learn to sail’ course in our double handed 13′ CFJ sailboats. This is the first time we are offering this type of class to members and the public. Ages 19+

August 13 - 17 : 10:00am - 3:00pm @ SYC

It is highly likely that you will spend time in the water either during the swim test or when the boat capsizes. You need to be capable of swimming with sailing gear on and strong enough to pull yourself back in the boat. The boats we are using are smaller dinghy’s so quick reaction time and ability to move suddenly will be required. You do not need any prior sailing experience although having some will help. One of our talented summer sailing instructors will be teaching the class. It is sure to be great fun!


Want to sail bigger boats? Take classes through our partnership with Modern Sailing

Sausalito Yacht Club and Modern Sailing are teaming up to provide members of our club the opportunity to learn how to sail, enjoy the club’s waterfront and be a part of the San Francisco boating community. The main focus of the program will be to provide sailing lessons for beginners while giving them the encouragement to continue their boating careers with other classes offered by Modern Sailing.

The Beginning Sailing classes will be offered on the weekends and possibly during the week if there is interest. Classes will be taught by a Modern Sailing qualified US Coast Guard Keelboat Instructor on Modern Sailing Boats. When students complete their beginning sailing course they will receive a ASA 101 Sailing Certificate. Modern Sailing will be offering discounts to SYC members who wish to continue their education in classes such as Basic Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Cruising.
