Hi! I am Captain Lisa of SailTime San Francisco Bay.
Sailing has been my passion ever since I can remember back to when I was seven years old on a Sunfish with my father and the family dog! I spent many years sailing catamarans before I got serious and started sailing bigger boats. Along the way I took classes, read, studied and did a lot of sailing. The excellent training I have received both with an instructor and with on water experience has made me the confident sailor that I am today. Never stop learning or sailing! I was a SailTime member for three years before I set off for my 3-year sabbatical sailing 1/2 way around the world. SailTime allowed me to gain the confidence I needed to graduate from a day-sailor to a weekend-sailor to a world-cruiser.
I am excited to share my knowledge and experience. From calm days exploring the bay to a windy exciting day, I love it all. Fractional sailing is the best way to sail a world class sailboat for less than the price of a slip and maintenance. Our program is designed so that you feel like you are sailing on your own boat. Once you have mastered the right skills and certifications, you can single hand, sail at night and take the boat for long weekends. To learn more information about SailTime becoming a member of the fleet, please feel free to call me or contact me via the form below. Fair Winds, Captain Lisa
San Francisco Bay has long been known for having some of the best sailing in the world. The winds are consistent, the waves are small, and the scenery is spectacular. Some of our favorite sailing destinations in the Bay include:
- Angel Island for lunch and hiking
- Docking at waterfront restaurants in Sausalito
- Shooting through Raccoon Strait with the current
- Spending a night on the hook in Clipper Cove
- Shopping and restaurants at Jack London Square
- Sailing under the Golden Gate Bridge
Conveniently located in two wonderful San Francisco Bay marinas:
Emery Cove Yacht Harbor is located on Powell Street in Emeryville, just north of the bay bridge. It provides quick access to great sailing areas like The Slot, Olympic Circle, and the central bay. Facilities include double fingered upwind slips, security gates, wifi, ample parking, well-maintained restrooms with showers and laundry facilities, and great views of the bay. Within walking distance, there are three great restaurants (Trader Vic’s, East Ocean Hong Kong, and Chevy’s) and a grocery store.
Pier 39 in San Francisco is a world-class destination and the Pier 39 marina is centrally located to provide access to great central bay sailing destinations like Alcatraz, Angel Island, the Golden Gate Bridge and the San Francisco waterfront. Facilities here include double fingered slips, security gates, and first-class restroom and shower facilities. Within walking distance are several great restaurants (Bubba Gump, Hard Rock Cafe and the Crab House) and attractions.
