Fall in the South Bay means several things: the air is crisp, the sun is (usually) shining, and the waters of the Redwood City Marina are peaceful and prime for sailing. Of course first you’ll need to learn how—and for that, locals turn to Spinnaker Sailing School, the American Sailing Association affiliate that provides nautical newbies with internationally recognized certification. What began in 1980 as one small boat and a floating office quickly cruised to a full-fledged sailing enterprise in which founder Rich Ferrari, head instructor Bob Diamond, and the rest of the SSS team show sailors-to-be the ropes of basic sailing fundamentals, tacking, jibbing, sail theory, and much more. Begin your Basic Keelboat Sailing 1 lesson with some even-keeled, in-classroom curriculum. Then, take to the water to practice your newly acquired maritime methods. No need for SOS, at SSS the seafaring schooling is all smooth sailing (weather permitting, of course).
