Club Nautique is located in Alameda on San Francisco Bay. For over 15 years they have provided a unique pathway into the world of sailing with instruction, a charter fleet and club facilities. Their mission has been to meet all of their members sailing needs and help them realize all of their sailing goals.

The fact that they are not just a sailing school or rent-a-boat operation means they are committed to their members long term sailing success. When you take a class at Club Nautique, rest assured their goal is to make you into the best sailor possible. After all, when you graduate you're going to be sailing their boats. You will be surprised at how fun it is!

Once you're a member of Club Nautique, they continue to meet your sailing needs, from on-going instruction to worldwide charters and maybe even boat ownership. Many of our members have been with them since they opened their doors back in 1980. They are also quite proud of members who came never having sailed before, and because of Club Nautique, are out cruising the world on their own boats. Perhaps you simply look forward to flying to the Caribbean with your Bareboat certification in hand and skippering a charter boat on the vacation of a lifetime. Whatever your sailing dreams, they are here to help you realize them.

Club Nautique now offers its members more sailing services than any other club in the country, all for the low price of one membership. Pay them a visit and discover how they can make your sailing dreams come true.
