Our stated purpose is ”to foster participation in yachting and the preservation of well designed, properly constructed and well maintained classic and traditional wooden sailing craft…”
If you have a traditionally designed sailboat, built with traditional methods and materials, you may be eligible to join the MMBA.
Members are encouraged to participate in any and all events; however, you need not sail your boat to every event to participate. With so many activities, volunteering at events is an excellent way to meet some good people with like interests and become part of San Francisco’s history.
The membership process starts by filling out an application form, submitting a current photo of your boat under sail, paying the application fee, inspection of your boat by a Board Member or delegate, and the approval of the MMBA Board.
We also have a Friend level membership for people who don’t currently have a traditional boat but would like to support and participate in the Master Mariners‘ activities. If you are interested in finding out more about joining the MMBA, please contact us and we will send you an application form, or you can download it below and mail it with a check to our Membership Chair, Liz Diaz (her address is on the form).
