Learn to Windsurf Saturdays- ages 9-16, no experience necessary. Meet at the Junior Room at 9am and we’ll wrap up by noon. Bring a lifejacket and booties. We can provide a wetsuit. The club owns eight Bic Techno 293 - the ISAF official youth board. The board is stable and has sufficient volume to get you started, but has footstraps and a retractable centerboard for high wind performance. Sail sizes range from 2.5 square meters to 6.0 square meters. The first few classes will take place on “the beach” to the east of the Golden Gate YC (but meeting at the junior room first).

High School Fall Sailing

The Bay School and Waldorf School of San Francisco are the two primary tenants in our high school sailing program. Preparing for local “one day” competitions (Norcals) will be the focus for newcomers. Advanced racers will turn their attention to the PCISA schedule: a series of two-day events that are highly competitive. The Fall practice season wraps up November 6th. Newcomers are welcome!

Schedule: First Practice - Wednesday September 3 from 1530-1815.
Practice days will be Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Cost: $225 per semester.
