Sailboat Checkout

The checkout program allows IYC adult or junior members to skipper Club-owned sailboats on Tomales Bay. Absentee members are not eligible. All sailors must be certified by IYC before checking out Club boats, and certification can factor in experience or outside certifications from other programs at the discretion of the committee chair.

To request certification, first familiarize yourself with the IYC Adult Sailing Checkout Program Procedures, Club Boat Equipment, and the Rigging Instructions (see below). Then fill out and submit a Checkout Application Form (also below). 

Once certified you must use the Checkout Request form in order to reserve the boat requested. Checkout is on a first come first served basis based on the Request form. Sailors who participate in the Checkout Program are responsible to help maintain and repair the Club boats used in the Program.


The Club owns and maintains two Flying Scots, which are parked in the yard on trailers in the row of boats closest to the Bay.

The Club owns and maintains one Laser which is parked on a trailer just south of the Laser rack, next to Sir Francis Drake Boulevard.

Sailors must wear Coast Guard approved Type III personal flotation devices at all times while aboard Club owned boats. Sailors are encouraged to purchase their own life vest. There are some Mae West style life preservers in the Adult Sailing locker that are available for use.

This is a unique Program- please use it! We hope to see you out on the water !
