We are the original sailing Meetup group in the San Francisco Bay Area, and the most active. You don't have to know how to sail to be part of the group. However, you do have to fulfill some basic requirements. Please be sure to do this or you may not be able to join or remain in the group. The information you need to join is at this link and on the profile sign-up page.
The purpose of this meetup group is to promote and share the passions of sailing. Anyone interested in sailing may join. Unlike other sailing groups which charge people to sail, our member boat owners offer free or inexpensive sailing opportunities for everyone as they share their joy of sailing in one of the most beautiful bays in the world!
The only time a crew member may be asked to pay is on a member charter-share where everyone shares the cost to charter the boat on some events. We don't run a sailing business or promote the commercial interests of other sailors, and this NBS meetup is maintained by our boat owners and the leadership team.
Occasionally we’ll post local non-sailing marine events that may charge a small donation or fee such as sailing lectures, boat-building workshops, American Cetacean Society events, Marine Mammal Center events, Latitude 38 crew-list parties, and similar events.
