NPS Sailing Association

Come sail with us! The NPS Sailing Association provides sailing opportunities to the NPS and NSAM community, including faculty, staff, and students. NPSSA has two Santana 22' sailboats available for rent at substantially lower rates than anywhere out in town. The boats are located at the Coast Guard pier in downtown Monterey, providing an incredible opportunity to get out and experience the beautiful Monterey Bay firsthand.

No previous sailing experience is required to come and sail, however a check-out sail is required to be completed by all members prior to renting boats. Classes will be offered soon to those people desiring to learn to sail. Additionally, a US Sailing certification program will be offered so that sailing certifications will be transferable to any sailboat rental organization in the country. Sailing at NPSSA has a long history, and we are proud to be able to offer NPS and NSAM personnel the chance to get back out on the water! For more information, contact
