OCSC Sailing in the Press

Bay Area Boomer

The People’s Captain

Boomer bio profiles Anthony Sandberg, a passionate sailor who vowed to bring sailing to the people through his Berkeley sailing club, OCSC SAILING (and succeeded!). Now, this sailing school helps get everyone on board. With 45 professional instructors and 50 yachts, OCSC is now the largest sailing program in North America, and rated as the best in the country by leading industry magazine Practical Sailor. But it's still a place where even those who aren't millionaires can rent million-dollar yachts for a day.

OCSC SAILING is one of the Best Places to Work

At this sailing school and adventure-travel company, staff break up their voyages with company lectures and fitness classes. If the perfect mix of city and sea isn’t enough, staff for OCSC Adventures lead trips and safaris as far as Tanzania, Antarctica, and Turkey.

U.S. News & World Report

Sailor Extraordinaire

Secrets of the Rich and Successfull - Who Struck Gold featuring Anthony Sandberg began with little but energy and native ability. US News and World Report set out to undertand the unique qualities of people who achieve great career success even when they don't have a college degree, including some of America's notable entrepreneurs. They discovered that real-world skills, practical intelligence, perseverance, and resilience are far greater determining factors than a formal education. This is the story of Anthony Sandberg, president and founder of OCSC.

Sailing salon mixes talking, tacking

Maneuvering a boat through treacherous waters is a metaphor for learning to sail through life. Anthony Sandberg, skipper, guru, adventurer, storyteller and educator, brought together the disparate group for one of his regular Wednesday Night Sails. At any given time, he invites feminists, philanthropists, environmentalists and entrepreneurs, cloaks them in wet-weather gear, and gets them talking and tacking in equal measure.

Experience Gifts: Ready, Set, Wish! – Scale the Bay

OCSC Sailing runs the country’s largest single-location sailing school, where beginners learn the ropes on the San Francisco Bay, which will host the 34th annual America’s Cup catamaran race in 2013. Master the sport over five days or two consecutive weekends. One day one you’ll be at the helm of a 24-footer; by the next afternoon you’ll be commanding your crew to Jibe ho!

The Business of Friendship

As the captain, you want to be with people you know, trust and like. The same goes for business. By seeking opportunities to do business with friends, I turned a company that started with one borrowed boat into the largest sailing school of its kind.
