Sailboat Rentals

In order to rent our sailboats you must be checked off on that specific sailboat by either completing the prerequisite class at MBAC or completing a 2-hour orientation/check-off if you have previous sailing experience.  We are a self-service rental facility and when you rent a sailboat you are required to launch, rig, de-rig, and clean up your equipment.  

Regardless of sailing experience and ability, you MUST complete at least a 2-hour private lesson with one of our instructors. During your lesson you will be shown where the equipment is stored, how to rig and launch, demonstrate your sailing ability, complete a capsize and recovery, and be shown how to de-rig and store the equipment properly.  You can book a small boat sailing private lesson here.

Sailboat Rental Policies:

  1. You must be at least 18 years of age to rent equipment and willing to take financial and legal responsibility for the equipment you are renting (no more than 5 rentals per adult). For anyone under 18 who will be on equipment a General Release and Liability Waiver must be signed by their parent.
  2. If you choose to pay with cash you must provide a credit card for us to have on file in the event that you do not return the equipment in the condition in which it was received. 
  3. All equipment must be returned within 2.5 hours or ½ hour before closing—whichever comes first.
  4. You must wear a personal flotation device (PFD) at ALL TIMES.
