Not an OCSC Member? Consider a skippered charter
On skippered sailboat charters, the yacht is charged at the regular charter rate and the skipper is charged at just $150 per hour with a three-hour minimum ($112.50/hour for OCSC members).
Every yacht in our fleet is available for charter with a Coast Guard licensed skipper aboard. Weddings, birthdays, reunions and office parties become unique and memorable events when combined with a sail on beautiful San Francisco Bay.
