Any suggestions on which club to join?
There are so many ways to get experience. After BKB I bought myself a daysailer / large dinghy
and learnt on that for a couple of years, also doing BCC.
Many promote the "crewing on other peoples boat" approach.
Sailing schools are great too, I joined one after BCC and took advantage of cheap
chartering for a year or two. Great way to get some experience as a skipper
I'm a fan of Spinnaker
in Redwood City. I'm sure OCSC and Tradewinds are fine too. There's a not-for-profit one in Berkeley.
For you, isn't convenience for Sacramento an issue? Doesn't that make Richmond the best option at least as far as travelling time goes?
Finally, what about this outfit, IN Sacramento. A friend of mine is a member
. They do some fun small boat sailing in Lake Washington
and the Delta
