I've heard that Cal Sailing Club is great and it seems that they get 5 stars from Yelp. I haven't dealt with them personally though. Do you have access to a boat already? ~LL

Re: Best Sailing Instructors in SF Bay area.

This is a good time to look for a school/club. Many of them are having open house events where you can check out the the location, the boats you will be learning on and ultimately renting, the social scene, and the location. Strictly Sail Pacific is happening next week, so that is a good place to get a bunch of literature and a multitude of opinions. Go see these schools in person though, there is no substitute for that.

You are welcome to PM me for a recommendation of the school I went to, which I am really happy with, but I have only been to one school, so it's hard to pretend that I have much of a perspective, comparatively. I will say that I feel I have gotten a great education so far, and that there is always more to learn. I feel very confident sailing boats up to the mid 40' in almost any condition the bay will offer. Outside the bay will be the next step and I feel good about my club's classes for that. Furthermore, my club has some of the best boats available on the bay for a very competitive price, and I can say that objectively.
