Creating the next generation of sailors, champions and stewards of the sea
They say if you learn to sail on San Francisco Bay, you can sail anywhere. Generations of St. Francis youth sailors would agree.
For decades, our club has brought up great sailors, nourishing their need for speed and providing them with the best in equipment, facilities and instruction. We don’t just teach kids how to sail—we also teach them to love sailing.
We offer junior sailing opportunities year-round, for all skill levels, on a variety of boats. Our Learn to Sail and Learn to Race classes take place out of the San Francisco clubhouse and are open to members and non-members. Our High School Sailing Program supports seven San Francisco high schools each fall. Our High-Performance Clinics attract expert coaches from around the world to provide instruction on the hottest boats in the sport. In the summer, our weeklong sailing camps offer fully immersive experiences on Tinsley Island and on the Bay.
