Cal Sailing Club | Windsurfing and Sailing Lessons | Berkeley Marina - San Francisco Bay

Based out of Berkeley. I lived in San fran for 7 years and taught sailing near this club at OCSC. This was a very active and good club, but geared towards dingys not larger boats.

Worth checking out thier website just to see how it can be done.
Cheers for that .

Seem to have half a dozen sailboats (around mid 20's in size ) but mainly Dinghies and Windsurfers.

Still wrapped around the membership being local - although at the cheaper end of the market also a hands on maintanence requirement for each member. I am guessing that lower cost is from membership numbers being quite high and that dinghy maintanence cheaper / easier than same for sailboat - plus of course easier to have far more vessels available for the peak times.

Re: Sailing Co-op or Other

I have been assuming that warm climate means Caribbean or similar.
I noticed on another thread slip fees are quite steep down there. That would have to be " feathered out".
But there is no way anyone would be willing to look after such an endeavour
with out being reimbursed some how. I don't think an hourly wage would be the way, probably salary.
Maybe even more important is to have living arrangements ironed out.

But all of the above would come out of membership fees. Keeping in mind if one bareboats for 5 to 7 days the cost starts at $ 3,000.
