90 Minute
Intro to Sailing

Start on the smooth waters of our home port - North Basin in the Oakland Estuary. The area is blessed with warmer weather (usually 15 degrees warmer than the Central Bay) and fun the views of local marinas and boats. Learn the fun interplay between all the different types of water traffic in the area. Enjoy the sail as you slip along the waterway to Jack London Square, then return to home port.

2-day Learn to Sail BK1 Competent Crew

One of our most popular courses! 2 full days (typically 9:30-4:30), of learning 4 common sailing knots, enough of the vocabulary and language to get the jokes, what is expected of crew and how to help. The course is a great place to start for new aspiring sailors who have never sailed before. You will quickly get a solid handle on how sailing works and how to be a valuble part of the sailing team.
