NPS Sailing Association (Monterey)

The NPS Sailing Association provides sailing opportunities to the Monterey Bay military community, including active duty and retired military, faculty, families, and other employees of NPS and DLI.  NPSSA has two 22' Santana sailboats available for rental, group sail, or sailing instruction.  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.

Please copy on all your emails requesting information.  We are a volunteer organization, and will respond as quickly as possible.  Visit us online for more information.

Services Offered

Membership costs $50 per year, and a four hour rental costs $25.  NPSSA also offers group sails which are led by an experienced skipper.  These provide an excellent opportunity for sailors to brush up on their skills or for novices to experience sailing on Monterey Bay.  Group sails cost $10 for NPSSA members or $25 for non-members.  Contact for the next group sail opportunity.

NPSSA offers sailing classes throughout the year.  Students must be NPSSA members, and the cost is $175.  Classes include three two-hour classroom session (offered in the evening) and three six hour sailing sessions (on the weekend).  If you are an experienced sailor and want to join the club and rent a boat you will need to schedule a check sail with an Association skipper.  Contact to schedule a class or check sail.
