Gain the confidence to crew or skipper boats to 26’ in our Basic Keelboat course, and to 50’ in our combined Basic Coastal Cruising and Bareboat Charter courses. For the sailor that dreams of owning a boat and cruising the Caribbean or sailing the world, Coastal Navigation and Advanced Coastal Cruising are also offered. Click here to learn more about any of these courses. We offer our Basic Keelboat Class every weekend, and our Combo class most weekends.The Coastal Navigation course is offered each quarter.

Graduates will enjoy our exclusive free sailing and sailing club membership opportunities.

Since 2001, Bay Area Sailing School has won the ASA “School of the Year” award 2 times (2001,2002) and the “Outstanding Instructor of the Year” award 7 times (2001,2004 & 2006) (2 in 2005), (2 in 2017 - Jon Jones and Vernon Lemex), and Jones in 2018. Vernon Lenox and Daniel McCoy received the Outstanding Instructor of the Year for 2020.

We want to teach you how to sail, and keep you sailing. On successful completion of the Basic Keelboat course graduates receive certificates for a free mentor session of about 4 hours with an instructor, and a Free half day charter on a 27 ft.boat.  Our mentor sessions are with several other graduates and an instructor aboard. We also offer private Mentor Sails where you will not share the boat or instructor with other students. The private Mentor Sessions will allow time for at least two hours of sailing. The private Mentor Sessions are $250 and you can bring family or friends with you (up to four).
You will still have your free Mentor Session on Saturday morning to use.

are on full size wheel steered boats instead of smaller tiller steered boats used at other schools.   You can take up to five of your friends or family with you on your Free charter. Our instructors will spend whatever time it takes to give you the confidence to take your friends sailing - with you at the helm. Note: The free mentor session and charter are not offered at our  satellite  school.
