It's easy to make sailing friends here!  We are the original sailing Meetup group in the Bay Area, and the largest and most active.  We try to offer inexpensive sailing opportunities for everyone.   Nearly all of our events are free.

You don't have to know how to sail to be part of the group.  People with boats usually always welcome guests aboard to help pull ropes and turn cranks and pass out beer.  That is called "crewing".

The purpose of this meetup group is to promote and share the passions of sailing. Anyone interested in sailing may join. The variety of scheduled events can help build up your sailing social circle, which is one of the keys to more sailing. Educational, social, and actual sailing events will be fun and allow members to meet each other.

Hopefully we can introduce some passion-sailors to racing. It's a good way to sail more and really learn how to sail well. And it's a great excuse to go sailing on the race days, of which there are quite a lot in SF Bay. And, don't forget practice sessions, too. Crewing for race boats is the best way to get a lot of fun, inexpensive, thrilling sailing with a dedicated crew.

Please note that members with 3 "No Show"s to events will be removed from the group.

If you no-show to an actual sailing event, or prevent others from sailing if you change your RSVP to no within 48 hours of a sailing event, you could be removed from the group..

Please update your RSVP in time so the boat owners and captains can plan accordingly. This is a little courtesy to your fellow meetup members to make planning easier and not waste limited seats on a boat.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
