Sailing Club

Our Fleet

Sailing Lessons San Francisco Bay school instruction bay area classes club Rentals Learn to sail Women sailingTradewinds Sailing Club offers both brand new and classic boats--from Hunter, Beneteau, Catalina and others--representing a selection of the most popular brands of boats in use today. We choose boats that are affordable to maintain and affordable to own, representing the type of boat you might want to buy someday.

Tradewinds is a great way to try a lot of boats before you buy one. Because we have one of the lowest of members-to-boat ratio of any club, our members get plenty of sailing time. Our boats are clean, well maintained, and they offer plenty of sailing fun at affordable prices. You'll be proud to sail with Tradewinds.
