A Community Boating Center for Sausalito

Thank you to everyone who helped out at the Sausalito Herring Festival, all the restaurants and chefs, musicians, non-profit guests, all the volunteers, and all of the people who came to enjoy a beautiful day by the Bay in celebration of a small silvery fish! It was a smashing hit! You helped us raise over eight thousand dollars towards our ADA access ramp! THANK YOU!

Our mission is to preserve a gathering place on Sausalito’s unique waterfront to engage and educate the public about our rich maritime history and small craft heritage through affordable direct experience.

The community boating center will advocate environmental awareness, seamanship and safety, promote the use, building and display of traditional wooden boats and maritime crafts, and teach life skills through maritime education.

It will be a place for local maritime groups to hold classes, access the waterfront and build community through outreach. - mission statement

Our immediate goal is to restore docks and facilities and bring them to ADA compliance.
The docks, which are adjacent to Dunphy Park, are owned by the City of Sausalito and accessible to the public. We will operate the facility and teach sailing to children and adults and have part of our fleet available for rental.
We will also have traditional wooden boats on display, an eco class room, and indoor exhibition space.

Help us reach our goal!
