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 and 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. Today, SF Sailing Co has expanded its fleet of boats, added a sailing school, and constructed a team of some of the best Captains/Crew in San Francisco.

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

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.
