All students of Spinnaker Sailing's classes have qualified included in the understanding process.

As part of learning around, we always are 100% prepared and even more importantly, 100percent confident of skills on San Francisco Bay

Yes, we DO offer bareboat charters to Qualifed Sailors which did not proceed through their cruising training around.

If you have examined around San Francisco Bay no doubt you've discovered nearly every other business will not provide bareboat charters to non-members of that business's sailing club. San francisco bay area Bay is notoriously tough to sail. The mixture of large winds, fast currents and huge ships all around you will be making SF Bay a sailors mecca, for everyone because of the correct skills, or a sailors nightmare for all without.

Worry perhaps not, for the checkout fee of $100 we will allow you to get checked-out and then make certain you are ready when it comes to Bay. Please note: The checkout procedure is two-fold. If you're ASA or United States Sailing Certified send united states a duplicate of your logbook including certifications and you also wont need to take the written exams. If you are perhaps not, be ready to just take two written examinations before we shall also set up you for the on-water checkout. ANYONE takes the on-water checkout. There is no various other option to show your talent compared to one of our captains to witness you underway.


  • The checkout procedure is certainly not certification. It is only to prove your skills to united states so our insurance carrier will underwrite your sailing. We do provide ASA official certification process. This takes much longer and needs extra fees into American Sailing Association. Ask us for more info on getting qualified.
  • Anticipate the written examinations to simply take around 2 hours. There are two test for every standard of checkout.
  • The on-water checkout test can run from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, based your talent.
  • You will sign a charter contract and publish a harm deposit for the boat you are checking out on. The deposit ranges from $2000 - $5000 according to the ship. Any and ALL harm you developed while checking out can be your responsiblity as much as the amount of deposit. Over that amount the insurance organization pays.
  • If you do not pass the written exams, you fail the checkout and now we wont scedule the on-water portion.
  • Passing Demands
  • On-Water Exam 100percent (yes, you need to know 100percent of how to setup within the ship, function the motor, dock the watercraft, raise sails, MOB, an such like)
  • The point at which you fail everything during the on-water test, we head back to the dock. There is absolutely no instructional element of the checkout test.
  • Personal Lesson Before Checkout?

    This really is a great choice for those who've never ever sailed SF Bay but have loads of sailing experience and maybe are also licensed elsewhere. We'll pair our outstanding captains that will make certain you are 100per cent up to speed on all abilities before your checkout. In the event that you are unsuccessful, they'll certainly be honest and suggest a path to help you follow towards checkout or certification. The least 3 hours ($85/hr) plus prorated watercraft expenses.

    Yes, think about a skippered charter. There are many advantageous assets to this:

  • You don't need to upload a damage deposit as our United States Coast Guard certifed Captain is within charge.
  • It is possible to sail the vessel the maximum amount of or as little as you need
  • It could be a GREAT understanding knowledge. Make use of the Captain's knowledge and ability
  • After the charter, you just step-off the vessel. The Captain pumps the holding tank, docks the watercraft and cleans the lady up.
  • Saves Time and prices almost just like a non-member bareboat charter.
  • Sailing often?

    Consider joining the cruising club. People conserve $235 on a single day's charter aboard our Catalina 320's versus the non-member cost. Members have numerous other priviledges too.

    Who is the best sailboat manufacturer/builder? | Yahoo Answers

    Well the best will obviously be one of the custom manufacturers who are currently building the Volvo 70's, but if your talking designs similar to the C&C how about the Jboats. They've been highly competitive for years and depending on weather conditions out perform the C&C's regularly. They tend to be more of a planing type hull and perform great on reaches and in light air. I actually prefer the C&C designs. They tend to power their way upwind and through weather better.
