Since watching "Maidentrip" on Netflix a few months back, I've been inspired to give sailing a try. I found Afterguard on Groupon for $55 for a 90-minute class. Our instructor was Kevin and he made it so much fun. From the mooring, we sailed around the chanel. I was a bit disappointed that we didn't go out any further but... More

Loved this experience! Everyone must try this! I learned a lot and truly enjoyed every minute! I found Mary to be very knowledgeable and knew the history of the city and everything there is to know about sailing.

Had a blast on my sailing excursion with Mary - a seasoned Captain with a wealth of knowledge she was happy to share. It was educational, entertaining, and FUN! I am definitely going again!

In training one becomes exposed... More

We had an incredible time Saturday evening on the sunset cruise. Maury and Kevin did a great job showing us the bay from the Oakland Embarcadero. It's interesting to see the marina along with the big container ships in the beginning. By sunset we had an amazing view of the San Francisco skyline. Some might take issue with the slightly...

Afterguard Sailing Academy is a family operation on the Oakland Estuary run by Captain Mary and her husband Steve. I do a monthly membership there that allows me to take boats out anytime. They also have classes and evening sails followed by barbeques for those who just want to go sailing on the San Francisco Bay. It's a very low-key... More
