Bay Area Sailing Club, Tradewinds Sailing School and Club, Adds New Boats to Fleet

Richmond, California (EastBayDaily) — Tradewinds Sailing School and Club, a sailing school and sailboat rental company serving the Sacramento and Bay areas, is adding boats to its fleet in anticipation of demand from the April Strictly Sail Show. Two new boats will be added to the fleet in March. The April Strictly Sail Show, a large sailing trade show located at the Jack London Square in Oakland and the biggest Sailing Trade Show on the West Coast, should generate a high demand for sailing courses and sailing charters.

“We are very excited about this year’s Strictly Sail Show. Combined with the building excitement around the upcoming America’s Cup races, we expect this year’s boat show to be better than ever before,” owner and operator Matt Kepner of Tradewinds Sailing School and Club said.

Adding boats to Tradewinds’ fleet allows it to serve more customers and improve the overall condition of its fleet. One boat is being added to the Gold Fleet and the other boat will be added to the Silver Fleet. The new boats are a Bavaria 42 and a Hunter 31.

“The Bavaria is a new type of boat to our fleet. It will be our first one and will help vary the types of available boats at Tradewinds for our club members to sail,” Kepner said.

Tradewinds invites anyone wanting to learn about putting a boat in a charter fleet to contact Tradewinds for more information.
