Hi ! Newbie from SF Bay Area

Hello everyone, I just finished my Basic Keel Boat class & loved it.
Interested in finding out about sailing events & also getting more practice out on the water.

Re: Hi Newbie from SF Bay Area

Welcome to the forum. You'll find a number of bay and delta area sailors here.

It was between OCSC & Tradewinds, went with Tradewinds but now I dont know what club to join. I'd like to get more experience & crew on the weekends to get more comfortable w/sailing before I take the next classes & purchase my own boat.

Re: Hi ! Newbie from SF Bay Area

Aloha and welcome aboard!
Bay area has great sailing. I'm sorry I don't know the clubs there but there certainly are a great deal to choose from.
Good luck!
kind regards,

Re: Hi ! Newbie from SF Bay Area

Vallejo is an active club and closer to you than most bay clubs, which might be helpful!

Welcome ; -)

Re: Hi ! Newbie from SF Bay Area

Yes, Vallejo is about the closest place that has two dimensions of water - as opposed to a one dimensional river. Going further into the Bay Area gets you more options, but the struggle to get from Sacramento to Richmond, Berkeley, Oakland or Sausalito will dissuade you from going...

Re: Hi ! Newbie from SF Bay Area

There is also Club Nautique in Alameda.

Driving an additional 45 minutes past Vallejo gets you to the central SF Bay which is beautiful.

Re: Hi ! Newbie from SF Bay Area

well for that matter the cal sailing club is closer than Alameda, and is one of the best ways to learn to sail well with out spending a ton. I hadn't thought of it. Those little boats have a lot to teach us, and they do bigger keel bokat sailing as well.

Re: Hi ! Newbie from SF Bay Area

Also it is a good idea to look at the Latitude 38 crew list. It is a good source for linking people who want to sail. Latitude 38 Crew List
