South Bay Sailing: FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

What time should I get there?
You should arrive at the dock about 10 minutes before your sail time.

How long will my sail last?
Your sail lasts for the amount of time you have purchased. Your sail begins at your scheduled reservation time. We will board the boat, spend a couple of minutes at the dock to get you oriented and then cast off.

Will I get wet?
We do our best to keep you as dry as possible, however there is always a risk of splash. We recommend you bring a change of pants if you are planning to go somewhere immediately after your sail.

What should I wear? Will I get cold?
The daytime high in Redondo Beach varies about 20 degrees throughout the year from about 80 degrees to about 60 degrees. Most days, winter or summer, are in the high 60's to low 70's. Annual temperature readings for Redondo Beach can be found here.
We recommend that you check the weather for Redondo Beach on the day of your sail, dress appropriately for that temperature and bring an extra layer on top of that. The temperature does drop pretty significantly during the sunset sail so bring extra layers if your sail spans sunset. If you dress appropriately for the temperature in Redondo Beach at the time of your sail, you will have a comfortable and enjoyable sail.
Make sure to wear comfortable shoes for your sail. Flip flops and sneakers are fine. We do not recommend high heels or hard soled shoes as the boat can be slippery.

How do I make a reservation?
You can make a reservation by calling us at 310-937-3180 or emailing us at

Do you have minimum age? Are children allowed?
Children are welcome to join us. Children under 13 are required to wear a life jacket on our boats. If you have your own life jackets, you are welcome to bring them or you may use our life jackets.

I can't swim!
That's okay! We don't like to get wet either. Our boats are keelboats, which means they have a weighted fin underneath to prevent the boat from capsizing, and they are encircled by life lines to keep everyone on board. We also have life jackets for you to wear for the duration of your sail. Just let your instructor know if you would like one to wear before you cast off.

Why don't you answer your phone?
Sometimes all of the staff is on the water, and sometimes we're just on the other line. Always leave us a voice message, so we can call you back as soon as we get back to the office or off the phone. If you don't leave us a message, we can't call you back. Make sure you leave your number slowly and clearly in every message. If we can't understand you, we can't call you back.
