  • Revised Keelboat Basic Instruction Program: We have been working on revisions to the way we teach the basics of keelboats, and we are rolling these changes out now. They are described here. The various keelboat lesson levels are described here. Send questions or comments to the Rear Commodore (Sailing).
  • Berkeley Reef. Sheldon Coad took these photos with the help of Bobby Arthurs, and the club skiff. They circled the Reef and took photos in several directions. Pretty impressive when you see it, and pretty dangerous when you can't.
  • Consult the new manual on keelboat outboard motors.

sup kayakKayak and SUPs

A limited number of sit-on-top kayaks and stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) are now available for member use. No rating is required, but Day Leader approval is. This is a lower-wind activity, so the Day Leader may restrict use to the Novice Area or not allow it at all.

Want to get a rating/sign-off but don't know who can do it?

Access details on who can sign off on which ratings/tests/check-outs (e.g., the Day Leader can sign off on Novice Windsurfer written and self-rescue). If you are logged-in to the website, you will be able to see a list of members who have the qualification needed (e.g., a list of those signed-off on the Laser who can then sign-off others). This link is also visible when you look at your White Card on the website.
