The Treasure Island Sailing Center (TISC) is home to many active sailors and sailing programs. We are a non-profit community based facility managed by a core group of employees and dedicated volunteers. Our goal is to provide storage for active sailors that are committed to opening the sport of sailing to a larger and more diverse community. The city of San Francisco supports these community based programs by providing us with a no cost lease in exchange for community services. In addition to providing operating funds for the facility, storage fees go to further our mission by supporting our youth outreach and adaptive sailing programs for people of varying physical and developmental abilities. Please strongly consider these goals and terms when applying to TISC. We ask that everyone involved, and using the facility, support this mission, provide volunteerism to ensure its success, and be enthusiastic and supportive to our new sailing enthusiasts.


Dry Boat Storage

Dry Storage is available for boats under 2 tons and 27 feet. TISC provides a launching ramp for smaller boats and 2 hoists, a one ton and a two ton for launching larger boats. You must have your own lifting harness to use the hoist. The TISC facility is open year round with 24 hour access to our tenants.  Visit our boat storage page for more information and pricing.

Regatta Hosting

The TISC facility can be rented for your local or national regatta. The Treasure Island Sailing Center (TISC) is a great place for racing of all skill levels. Our location, facilities and space make it the ideal place in San Francisco Bay to hold regattas for dinghies and small keel boats. TISC has easy access to racing areas with different conditions, has docks and hoists needed to support dinghies and small keelboats, and space for lots of boats. Please consider TISC when planning your next Regional, National and International Events! Please visit the forms page to fill out the appropriate paperwork.

Visitor Boat Launching

We are happy to have people visit TISC during open houses, regattas, and special events. For people wanting to use TISC as a boat launching facility, prior requests MUST be submitted by faxing or emailing the Visitor Form. A TISC representative will respond to all requests Monday through Friday from 8:00am-5:00pm. If the boat is appropriate for our launching facilities (under 2 TONS and less than 27 feet) an orientation will be set up to go over the House Rules of the Facility. There is a daily launch charge of $15.00/day. Boats may not stay in the water overnight.
