Introduction to Sailing

Instructional classes at the Berkeley Marina

Experience the excitement of small boat sailing on the San Francisco Bay. Learn sailing theory, safety, and develop a strong foundation of skills in four half-day morning classes. This course will be composed of demonstrations, lectures, and plenty of time on the water in our fleet of Coronado 15s. You will develop the necessary skills (tacking, gybing, capsize recovery, docking, etc.) to move onto our Intermediate Sailing class.
