About Us

San Diego Sailing Club, Since 1969

Mission Statement: To offer an exceptional alternative to traditional boat ownership through superb safety measures and training aboard the highest quality boating equipment available.

Founded in 1969, San Diego Sailing Club dba Harbor Sailboats, is located on the beautiful San Diego Bay and is Southern California’s finest sailing club and instructional facility. Superior yacht choices and professional instruction make Harbor Sailboats the right club for new or seasoned sailors. Our large fleet of new yachts range from 22′-51′ and offer the latest designs from Beneteau and Catalina. Because of our status as a Beneteau sub-dealer, we are proud to add 2-3 new Beneteau sailboats each year into the charter fleet.  This, along with our incredible attention to yacht maintenance, makes Harbor Sailboats the benchmark for sailing clubs across the United States.

Harbor Sailboats is San Diego’s only members only sailing club. This status guarantees you priority access to lessons, events, and rentals throughout the year with personal attention from our highly qualified team.

We are U. S. Coast Guard approved and a proud seven-time winner of the “ASA School of the Year” award. We offer year round lessons from Basic Keelboat to Advanced Coastal Cruising, as well as fine tuning clinics like docking, spinnaker sailing, knots, night navigation, and more.

Members can get involved in the sailing community by choosing from the many club-sponsored activities, including Lady Mariners (women’s only sailing), Capri 22 one-design racing, group sails, crew sharing through the Members Only Forum, annual tropical sailing flotilla, and many other social events throughout the year.
