We have a membership program that fits your need...
Sailing Club offers several membership options on the San Francisco Bay. We believe that you will not find a better program or better
prices anywhere else on The Bay. After reviewing our programs below, be sure to review our answers to Frequently Asked Questions.
Fleet Membership Program -- Unlimited Sailing
This program is perfect for students practicing their skills and other
frequent sailors. As a Fleet member, you pay one low monthly fee -- NO
MATTER HOW OFTEN you sail during the month. This program is a Tradewinds exclusive.
No other club comes close.
Our membership has 5 Fleet levels:
- Copper - Small boats, typicall 25' and under, with tillers and outboard motors
- Bronze - Inboard diesels and wheels, 27' to 31'
- Silver - 31 - 38' boats
- Gold - boats 35' - 43' boats
Members can sail boats for which they are qualified, outside
of their Fleet by paying 50% (1 fleet up), 75% (2 fleets up), or 100% (more than 2 fleets up) of that boat's daily rate (see
the Skipper program for daily rate membership.)
The Fleet membership level requires a first year annual contract. Members can upgrade
to the next higher Fleet level by paying the new Fleet monthly rate for
the remainder of their membership contract.
As you can see, for less than what most boat owners pay for slip rent,
you can use a fleet of boats without the additional cost of boat ownership.
The more you sail, the better the deal.

Skipper (Daily Rate) Membership Program - Pay as you Go
This program is ideal for members who are trying out sailing or who
only sail occasionally. Skipper members pay a low daily rate each time
they use a boat. You can sail boats on the
San Francisco Bay. Our rates are the best value in the
Bay Area, typically 10%-30% below the competition.
Skipper members can sail any day of the week and pay the boat's daily
