Our mission is to foster self-confidence through instruction in sailing, seamanship, and racing skills at appropriate levels in a safe and fun environment so that participants may enjoy the benefits of sailing for a lifetime. We encourage an ongoing dialogue among students, parents, instructors, the EBSF Committee and the involvement of anyone who supports these goals.
East Bay Sailing Foundation (EBSF) encourages both juniors and adult participants to learn to sail and race through various programs. The programs include Adult Sailing and Junior Sailing, and each is further divided into a Sailing Program and a Race Program.
A Sailing Program and a Racing Program, available in three different types of boat, comprises the Junior Program.
The Sailing Programs are 2 week sessions focused on building student skills and self confidence through instruction in small boat sailing. The Sailing program is held Monday to Thursday from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
The Racing Program is an 8 week program for students who have mastered their sailing and seamanship skills and want to hone the skills needed for individual and team competitive racing. In addition to practice, racers will also be encouraged to participate in regattas in Bristol and around the bay. The racing program meets Monday/Wednesday/Friday. This is a bring your boat program; EBSF maintains a limited number of boats for charter to race team aprticipant.
Adult Mercury Program
The Adult Mercury Program accommodates all knowledge levels. Beginning classes are an introduction to sailing with no experience necessary, having an instructor in every boat at all times. The Intermediate class is for people with some sailing experience desiring to improve boat handling skills, and introducing new skills not covered in the beginner class. The Advanced classes are for experienced sailors who wish to continue sharpening their skills. The finer points of sail trim and boat handling are covered, as well as an introduction to racing, strategy, and spinnaker handling. Safety on the water is a large focus in all classes.
The Adult Sailing Program is provided in 8 week sessions of 1 day a week and meets Tuesday (Beginner class only) or Thursday from 6-9 PM or on Fridays from 1-4 PM.
Additional programs for Women and advanced adult courses utilizing the new J-22s are being developed. If you are interested in more informaiton regarding these courses please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
