You don’t need any gear whatsoever. We have loaner gear for everything you need…. everything from the boat to life jackets to sailing bibs to foul weather jackets – even wetsuits if you would like to get really wet. All of these are available in a variety of sizes for you to borrow while sailing.

What Can you Learn at This Sailing Lesson?
A Cal Sailing beginning sailing lesson typically provides an hour and a half on the water with one instructor and up to four students in a 15′ dinghy sailboat to learn basic sailing skills, identifying wind direction, adjusting the sails, and sometimes you’ll even get some time at the helm driving the boat.
