Your Benefits/Our Partners

Sailing Portal™ is a new brand, built by people who have been part of the sailing community going back generations.   These long associations give sailing portal students new to the sailing community, a distinct advantage of having people who are know, skilled and trusted available to introduce them racing, cruising and yachting lifestyles.   Sailing Portal Club membership is offered to enrolled students and those who continue to be part of the social lifestyle after graduation and who put their boats into our fleet.   Sailing Portal Club has reciprocal member arrangements with other clubs, that our instructors and founders belong to, and cruising events and parties monthly.

We provide benefits to Naval Postgraduate School Foundation Yacht Club members, who are a partner club with us based in Monterey, CA.

In addition:

When you obtain your US Sailing Certification for  Basic Keelboat, we give you:

1 Year US Sailing Membership (we pay US Sailing on your behalf). Value $75.  This also comes with discounts from many businesses.



When you complete Basic Keelboat, Basic Cruising or Bareboat Crusing Courses with us, you can choose one benefit per course that  you would like to receive from our partners below:

1 Year Historical Seaport Membership: Lady Washington Tall Ship. Value $75

We donate $75 to GHHS.  Supports maintenance on Lady Washington, putting people into living-wage jobs, youth programming, and bringing history to life.  As a Member you will receive:

  • Subscription to Currents newsletter
  • Invitations to special Members-only sails and events
  • Members-only Lady Washington swag

Members will be invited to special members only sails and events throughout the year along the West Coast! We look forward to these events in 2022! Because COVID has made it more difficult for us to get together, we are extending all memberships through December 31, 2022 so you will have more opportunities to come sailing.  The Lady Washington comes to the SF Bay a couple times per year in her travels up and down the Pacific Coast.

More partnership in process.  Check back!
