OCSC SAILING - San Francisco Bay - Sailing Towards the Golden Gate

Get a Real Glimpse of the Sport

OCSC Sailing’s location in the Berkeley Marina is unbeatable. Literally sitting on the bay, nestled behind two break walls, the panoramic views of the three bridges and the city of San Francisco are stunning. One can’t help but feel that there’s something special nearby.

We love to share our campus, so we host social, educational and corporate activities all year round. The OCSC Sailing facility is located adjacent to a 100-acre marine park with trails, open space and, of course, spectacular views in every direction. And, we're a two-minute drive from the freeway.

Sometimes it's hard to get the real flavor of a place from a Web site, so we encourage you to come down to our campus and have a complete tour with John, Johnny, or Steve - then you'll really have a taste of OCSC! No appointments are necessary, and we're here between 9 am and 5 pm, 7 days a week, ready to share some time with you.

Our Fleet and Docks, plus our Wind and Weather

We'll show you our docks, we'll go on board a few boats, give you a sampling of the "magic wind" in our classrooms, and then from the clubroom you can check out what's going on with the real wind out on the Bay.

Upon walking into the OCSC front office, members are greeted by smiling individuals who are more than happy to assist. I can vouch for those smiles—I am one of those individuals, and yes, we are genuinely happy to be here! How could staff not be happy? The members are ecstatic to go sailing with their friends and love sharing their awesome adventures. The beautiful, glistening bay shines right out of the office windows all day long, and every person that steps through the office door tends to have the same goal in mind: to have a fantastic time!

OCSC SAILING - Our Instructors - Teaching Basic Keelboat

Our Instructors

The dedicated instructors find great joy in sharing their passion for sailing with their students. The level of hands-on guidance from instructors is unsurpassable— students immediately trust them and their skills. By the end of the course, students have learned to trust in their own skills and have become confident sailors.

As a distinguished sailing school, OCSC offers courses for all types of sailors. Beginners can get a solid foundation and build their sailing education from the ground up. More advanced sailors challenge themselves with our Sport Boat Asymmetrical Spinnaker class or Coastal Navigation. With a little bit of something for everyone, there is hardly a dull moment.
