An Overview of San Francisco’s Club Nautique By Vivek Kesaree

8 Jun

Recipient of the U.S. Sailing Prosser Award for outstanding sailing instruction, San Francisco’s Club Nautique has provided aspiring sailors with power boating and sailing lessons since 1980. The club maintains a charter trawler and sailboat fleet of over 45 boats and offers beginner to advanced offshore training, club activities and facilities, yacht sales, and more.

Individuals with an interest in sailing do not need to become club members; however, membership carries a number of added benefits. For the convenience of its members, Club Nautique provides several levels of membership that differ primarily in the type or amount of inclusive instruction. Higher-level memberships can include reduced rate access to entry-level training boats and resale privileges. All memberships include a 40% concession on yacht charter rates, access to numerous social cruises, clinics, and seminars, opportunities to cruise worldwide, and more.

Club Nautique has two locations in the San Francisco Bay Area including one at the Ballena Isle Marina in Alameda and a second at the Clipper Marina in Sausalito. Complete information about Club Nautique can be accessed at
