All three courses are required to book the Club yachts and are earned at your own pace. In the case that the member already has the experience, a sailing check-out will be performed to review his/her sailing skills and confidence and asses wich course might be required.
However, no matter the level of experience a NEW member may bring into the CLUB, unless he/she can show proof of having credited the ASA 104 BAREBOAT CRUISING certification and based on pre-qualification, there is a $75 fee for a “check-out” with a Wahine Sail Club sailing instructor to evaluate skills. if the WAHINE SAIL CLUB determines that sail training is required, WAHINE SAIL CLUB will provide sail training in accordance with the discounted rates offered to members
Our low student to teacher ratio (4 to 1) ensures that you get just the right amount of hands-on experience. Basic Keelboat, Basic Cruising & Bareboat Cruising classes have a maximum of four students and one instructor per boat. While there will sometimes be less, there will never be more.
Our Club is located in the heart of Silicon Valey, in Redwood City, directly across the San Mateo Bridge, in the Blu Harbor Marina. Our location is unique as it allows you to be sailing in minutes in a world’s premier sailing destination
