Welcome! The San Francisco SSS offers events where singlehanded and short-handed sailors can share knowledge, gain experience, and find a structured environment to expand their horizons. The SSS encompasses everyone from a first-time, double-handed sailor to veterans of the Singlehanded TransPacific (SHTP) yacht race. We are always learning and always sharing knowledge.
Please join us for the full season. And if you have not already, please also check us out on: FacebookInstagram and Twitter

  • Jibest registration is open for the Singlehanded Sailing Society’s 2019 Half Moon Bay race! This race starts in San Francisco Bay near Golden Gate Yacht Club and finishes at the Pillar Point Harbor entrance. We can usually raft up to the Half Moon Bay Yacht Club’s floating docks if weather conditions allow. Club members will be available to help and provide more details on Channel 69. There are both singlehanded and doublehanded divisions. 

  • The skippers’ meeting for the Half Moon Bay race will be held at Oakland Yacht Club on Wednesday, September 11, starting at 1930. Come early for socializing!

After the race, please join HMBYC members for a scrumptious dinner! Galley Manager Suzanne and Commodore Scott will be in the galley whipping up a delightful meal you won’t want to miss…see the menu below. Cost is $25 per diner. Pre-registration is strongly advise. There will be only a very limited number of walk-in meals available.
