We know sailing has the potential to change a life, and it is possible thanks to supporters like YOU! Together we are providing our community with access to sailing and our city’s precious resource, San Francisco Bay. We’re building the character of the next generation while teaching good habits and safe boating. We’re giving the community access to the water through free or low cost courses and rentals. Everyone who sails on our little gem in the Bay, Clipper Cove, leaves with a renewed self-confidence and a big smile.
A day on the Bay can impact a child for life. Every donation makes a difference and allows the Treasure Island Sailing Center to continue to provide affordable sailing to the public, access to the Bay, and first sails to thousands of local youth. None of this is possible without the help of our community.
Please consider supporting this important work with a year-end donation. These dollars will directly translate into sailing experiences for local youth who would otherwise not have the opportunity. There’s nothing holding TISC back in 2019, and I’m confident our impact will be even greater. On behalf of all TISC’s supporters, the Board of Directors and staff, I thank you for your consideration and generosity.
The Treasure Island Sailing Center offers keelboat and dinghy classes (including US Sailing certification), rentals, and private lesson. Please visit our J-24 Rental page for more information on the qualification process for rentals. All classes start out in Clipper Cove a protected body of water nestled between the Bridge and Treasure Island. We teach everything from basic boat handling to advanced high wind sailing techniques.
The Treasure Island Sailing Center offers sailing and water sports lessons to youth, adult, and adaptive sailors. Since 1999, TISC has served over 30,000 youth and adults. TISC is a US Sailing certified community sailing center and offers beginner through advanced sailing courses to youth and adults. Groups and community organizations are welcome! Scholarships are provided to all who meet the financial requirements. Visit our scholarship page to see if you or your youth group qualifies for free sailing lessons.
Support our Programs
As a community sailing organization, Treasure Island Sailing Center provides opportunities for personal growth and environmental stewardship through the sport of sailing. The majority of our participants are underserved youth. These youths lack the financial resources needed to join a sailing program and often developmental support. TISC’s programs give these kids a pause from life’s challenges while encouraging goal setting, communication, decision-making and leadership. Sailing provides a connection to our Bay and the necessary skills to move forward into adulthood, all while having a ton of fun!
