Learn to Sail - Sunsail San Francisco

Sunsail - San Francisco Bay is located at the head of the Sausalito Yacht Harbor in the beautiful, quaint and artsy town of Sausalito, CA. We are just off HWY 101 at the North end of the Golden Gate Bridge. It is just a couple of minutes from the slip to the consistent winds of San Francisco Bay's Central Basin where such iconic sites such as Alcatraz, Golden Gate Bridge, Ghirardelli Square, and Pier 39 are readily visible.

Sunsail offers a range of ASA courses along with a variety of racing and tune-up courses suited for beginners to advanced level sailors.  We have a large staff of instructors who draw from a variety of specialties and backgrounds to suit any student.  Our instructors have an average 20+ years sailing experience.

Sunsail has (8) made for Sunsail 2012 Beneteau First 40.7’s.  The boats are high performance cruiser/racers with a compliment of the latest B&G instrumentation aboard.  They are perfect for cruising and bareboat courses and are nimble and agile enough to for the beginning sailor. Although the size of the boat is large by most learn to sail standards, the layout and modern design make our boat easy to handle.  Since she has racing in her blood, the boat is light on her feet and no feel is lost.  Rather, she is more reactive than smaller older boats used by most schools. 

Students will learn on a yacht they’ve dreamed of sailing.  Our bareboat certificate allows you to charter with us anywhere in the world!
