Sailboat Rentals

In order to rent our sailboats you must be checked off on that specific sailboat by either completing the prerequisite class at MBAC or completing a 2-hour orientation/check-off if you have previous sailing experience.  We are a self-service rental facility and when you rent a sailboat you are required to launch, rig, de-rig, and clean up your equipment.
