Sausalito inspires a love of the sights sounds, and smells of the San Francisco Bay, and the many boats and charter vessels milling around the waterfront and marinas often inspire visitors and locals to want to become their own captains. The danger of taking a chartered cruise on a sailboat or powered vessel on the bay is that you may like it enough to get hooked on the experience, but the positive side is that there are more quality sailing and boating courses offered in Sausalito than most anywhere else in the Bay Area!

Continuing Sausalito’s maritime traditions, there are many sailing schools and classes based in the bayside city offering both serious students and novice hobbyists the chance to become more familiar with the intricacies of sailing and maritime etiquette and practices. If you want to become proficient at commanding a vessel on the bay or the Pacific Ocean, Sausalito’s sailing and boating schools have the perfect set of programmers to teach you.

Learn the Basics

Many of the sailing classes and programs offered by area sailing schools such as Sailing Education Adventures and Modern Sailing School and Club will teach you the basics and get you prepared for some basic sailing fun. They will help with everything from rigging and basic navigation practices to Keelboat, Catamaran, and specialized craft piloting and operation and ensure that you are comfortable and competent at the helm. Learning the basics of sailing such as terminology and knots, navigation, and right of way and best practices can go a long way toward helping you become more comfortable and able when out on the water and will even qualify you to help crew for other captains!

Sailing Clubs in Sausalito

The majority of Sausalito’s sailing schools are also set up as private clubs in which members get special benefits such as access to special events and discounted lessons and classes. The popular Club Nautique and others offer special pricing on their extensive listing of classes and programs that will add up and make it significantly less expensive if you are planning to complete a complete course and become certified for different vessel-types and specialties. Many of the sailing clubs also maintain a fleet of vessels that are made available to members for use meaning that in addition to the discounts and events, you will have access to well maintained and state of the art vessels for your own personal use!
