The greatest pleasure in sailing comes from the ability to participate. Fundamental skills are all you need to move from being a passenger to being welcomed aboard as a competent member of the crew. With the techniques you learn in this course you will instantly be helpful to any skipper -- whether day sailing on San Francisco Bay or bareboat chartering in a tropical paradise. It is more fun to be confident on the water!
Saturday and Sunday 9am–4 pm
OCSC is the only school in the Bay Area providing you with waterproof gear to make sure you stay dry and comfortable while learning without having to add a few hundred dollars in gear to the expense of learning to sail. In any course you take here, we loan you waterproof pants and jacket along with a comfortable, Coast Guard approved personal flotation device.
