By owning a boat in the OCSC Sailing fleet, you are entitled to full membership privileges for you and your family members living at home. Substantial discounts on class, activites and charters of other yachts are just some of the benefits.
OCSC has over 50 professionally-maintained boats in the charter fleet, ranging in size from 24’ to 82’. Our fleet offers everything from training boats to sport boats to large yachts ideal for extended overnight cruises.
Knowing how to sail is one thing, but knowing how to teach sailing is another. OCSC’s captains are among the best qualified and most prepared teachers in the industry. We also have the largest number of instructor trainers and master instructor trainers on staff in the country.
Varying program lengths are available, depending on the owner's desires and the age of the boat when it enters the program. Typically, used boats stay in the charter program from three to four years, and new boats remain active for five to seven years.
You’ll be met in the front office by a team of smiling faces who are there to help answer any questions you may have about OCSC courses, membership, chartering or any of our other services.
Our low student to teacher ratio ensures that you get just the right amount of hands-on experience. Basic Keelboat and Basic Cruising classes have a maximum of three students and one instructor per boat. While there will sometimes be less, there will never be more.
