MSC is dedicated to making your learning experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. Unlike at other sailing schools, all of our beginning courses are taught on 30 to 32 foot keelboats with wheel steering (no tillers), inboard diesel engines, and roller furling jibs. These features will help build confidence right away.
We also have the most experienced instructors on San Francisco Bay. Our instructors hold US Coast Guard 50 Ton (or greater) Master’s Licenses, representing decades of sailing experience. They are award winning instructors, world cruisers, and Coast Guard commanders. Our high standards have earned us accolades in the sailing community, including the American Sailing Association’s 2004 and 2009 School of the Year award.
