How does W SAILING work?
1 - How many subscribers does W SAILING have per destination?
W only allocates 10 members per yacht overall, not per destination.
2 - How many yachts does W have per destination?
Any new destination or yacht incorporation to the fleet starts with NEW subscribers enrolled. We do this on a PRE-SALE process. W only makes subscription offers to eligible candidates that are considered to be a fit for the W community and are willing to make a contribution to increase the wellbeing of the community they aim to belong.
3 - Where in Tiburon is the W harbor?
As soon as the the W community manage to enroll 5 NEW members a new boat will be added to the fleet in Tiburon, especifically at Cove at Tiburon, a private premium marina just facing SAUSALITO.
All W Sailing destinations are based on premium-marinas and operate on a contact-less check-in / check-out method.
4 - When yachts are unavailable to members at a certain location, how often must that lack of availability occur before W SAILING incorporate another yacht for that location?
Subscribers sail collectively between them and their guests at differentsailing destinations as they become available. As a result, W does not have such thing as UNAVAILABILITY. To secure that, W also keeps a ratio of 10 subscribers per yacht, and W only makes new subscriptions available when new yachts/openings become available and offer those spots to individuals that fit W nautical lifestyle. W does not purchase yachts; W manufactures them at its own factory in Massachusetts and deploys them across they selected siling estinations as needed and considered.
5 - How many members W has in Lake Tahoe?
W subscribers do not subscribe to a specific destination. W subscribers enroll for the whole lifestyle sailing experience and that includes any available destination. 1 Subscription fits all destinations, 10 subscriber per yacht.

Under normal circumstances, at the end of April, W will remove a yacht from a year-round Bay area destination to be relocated for the summer on Lake Tahoe. Quantity of yachts will vary according to community wishes and intention to sail in Tahoe.

The only large enough locaion with deep waters and abundance of marine-services in the Tahoe area is the South Lake Tahoe Yacht Club.
8 - When members take a yacht, for how long may they take the boat? Hours? Days?
They can go for a couple of hours or for a couple of days. Usage is unlimited. Normal usage is between 3 to 4 has each sail. W SAILING manages yacht reservations to help subscribers to book unlimited sailing time collectively with other subscribers and to participate within the Lifestyle Learn to Sail program easily, making the process of yacht allocation efficient and equitable for all the subscribers across all the destinations.
9 - How does booking work?
Bookings can be made using the online W SAILING (web/app) reservation system. Any booking received will be first verified before a reservation can be confirmed. Subscriber books sailing slots by choosing the Sailing Slots desired from a different W SAILING predetermined sailing calendar. Each day of a week is divided into 5 different sailing slots.
