New MBAC Sailing Membership Offers Opportunity to Sail More!

We are excited to announce that Mission Bay Aquatic Center is now offering unbeatable sailing memberships! Our membership program provides a way to access sailboats and get out on the water as frequently as you would like. Affordably priced at just $45/month with a $150 initiation fee, Sailing Memberships are a low-cost way to sail with ease and convenience without the headache or expense of owning your own boat.

The $150 initiation fee is waived for first-time members who are currently qualified to rent sailing equipment at MBAC through having completed a class, lesson, or rented a sailboat with us in the past 5 years. For sailors who have not yet completed qualifications, the $150 initiation fee includes a mandatory two-hour member orientation and skills assessment that will include qualification for one type of vessel (Hobie Getaway, RS Quest, Sabot, Laser, or Windsurfer). Members are eligible for free Instructional Clinics where sailors can try new things and improve their skills on the water.

For just $5 more than a single sailboat or windsurf rental, you could sail or windsurf as much as you would like each month. Plus, as a member, you will receive some pretty amazing benefits including:

  • Unlimited Sailing Rentals*
  • Free instructional clinics to continue your sailing education
  • Initiation fee waived for first time members whoa re currently qualified to sail MBAC equipment
  • 10% off classes
  • 20% off paddleboard and kayak rentals

  • Skip the line! Take your membership card straight to the dockmaster to check out equipment!
  • Member-only used equipment sales
  • Member-only coupons and special offers
