The Santa Rosa Sailing Club is based in Santa Rosa, California, 50 miles north of the Golden Gate. We have been an active, family oriented club since 1953, and membership is open to anyone interested in sailing. For 2015, we've scheduled over 30 days of sailing events, throughout the year. Our members' boats range in size from the 8' El Toro to 36' bay racer/cruisers. Some of our members are always looking for crew, so you don't need to own a boat to participate. And, during the Summer Twilight Series, the club has arranged for rental boats through the City of Santa Rosa. We sail on lakes large (Clear Lake) and small (Spring Lake), Tomales Bay, the Petaluma River, and San Francisco Bay. We have non-racing, racing, and mixed events throughout the year.

We got blown out! Winds over 20 knots and waves coming right up to the launching ramp. David Gray braved the weather and took his Sabot out. David made it to the restaurant destination intact, but filled the boat with water on the return trip and needed a rescue. No damage though.

We are planning to try again in September...hope you can join us. there should be some room for those of you who don't have a boat and want to crew. Check the club meetup site for updates.
