Learn to Sail

Where would you like go sailing with your new sailing skills?

  • Charter a sailboat on the west coast or the Caribbean.
  • Start racing (fly a blue flag to identify yourself as a new racer... other boats will assist / coach / give you a bit more room).
  • Take family and friends sailing.
  • Use the Club's boats (dinghies and keelboats) to get more sailing time, the Club many boats available for members.

The Club's sailing lessons start out with the fundamental skills needed to enjoy sailing and go all the way up to advanced sailing techniques.  Start with the basics. Add more skills as you need them.

While you are thinking about learning to sail, this video gives you a step-by-step overview of learning to sail.


There's an active year-round social calendar... First Wednesday Socials in the off season, a burger and a beverage at the Club every Wednesday evening after racing, pre- and post-event socials. The stories and friendships last forever.


Racing sailboats can be done at all levels of experience. Racing adds focus to your BTUs (boat time units).  Most everyone finds that one season of racing equals at least a few years of "sailing around" time.

  • Wednesday Night Racing - early May through mid-September. This is  some of the best experience you can get to improve your sailing.
  • Fall Sunday Series - Sunday afternoons mid-September until the end of October. Bring your toques and gloves, the fall winds are great.
  • Weekend Regattas - local and away, there are many opportunities to go sailing.
Sign up for Racing School (free) or join the Pickup Crew List (also free) and get out on a sailboat with experienced sailors to see what racing is all about and if it is something you might enjoy.
