What we’ll do

I will introduce you to the art and science of sailing, from safety to trimming sails, from steering to basic navigation and holding a course. As you learn to sail, we'll be exploring the gorgeous San Francisco Bay, including: the Golden Gate Bridge, Alcatraz, Angel Island and much more. Expect to do a little work - sailing isn't a sedentary sport!

Where you'll be

We'll board the St. Maurice, a Catalina 30, a 30-foot sailing sloop. We'll sail from our home base in San Francisco to many parts of the San Francisco Bay. We'll see Alcatraz, the Golden Gate Bridge, Angel Island, Treasure Island and Yerba Buena Island. We may get to see the reclusive Bay Bridge Troll that protects the structure. Afternoon trips tend to be more adventurous due to stronger winds than trips that start in the morning.
