What is a membership?

A membership to Harbor Sailboats is a way for sailors to access the water without the need of boat ownership. Harbor Sailboats is a sailing club, meaning we provide beginning to advanced sailing lessons, sailboats rentals, and new/used yacht sales to our members. A brand new sailor can join the club and immediately enroll into ASA 101 Basic Keelboat (included with your membership) and start chartering 22′ boats to build your skills and sailing resume.

After a handful of days on the water on our 22′ sailboats, members will be ready to take the next course, ASA 103 Coastal Cruising, and become certified to skipper boats up to 37′. Take your skills as far as you desire and become certified to skipper boats up to 51′!

Harbor Sailboats is proud to be San Diego’s only private sailing club!
