The San Francisco Sailing Company was started by Erik Ostrander. During his MBA program, he had written a business plan for a sailboat charter. Erik decided he would give it a shot for a season to see if it could make a little cruising cash to sail around the world and that is when the San Francisco Sailing Company was born. Years later, he would accomplish his dream of sailing around the world with his wife Elizabeth. In 2014, Erik brought on his best friend and business partner Jacob Morgan to innovate and expand the business. Today, SF Sailing Co has grown to a fleet of 14 boats, added a sailing school, and constructed a crew of some of the best Captains/Mates in San Francisco.

San Francisco Sailing Company’s mission, is to become the most fun and recognized sailing company in the San Francisco Bay. We promise to always maintain our boats, have great staff, and have the highest standards in the industry. We are a customer focused business, everything we do everyday is aimed at providing a safe, fun, and exquisite experience for our customers. Life is about the journey.

The San Francisco Bay is one of the most famous bodies of water in the world. Every year millions of people come to the area just to look at it and it keeps a special place in the hearts of everyone who has ever laid eyes on it.

The reason:
Few places in the world posses as much kinetic energy as the San Francisco Bay. With 1/6 of the entire bay emptying and refilling twice a day and strong consistent winds, its like a giant natural battery charger. The Bay stirs something inside of people, being close to something so energized gives us peace, perspective, and passion.
