Parking

Parking at the sailing center is often tight, and we recommend you allow yourself enough time to park.  If the parking lot is full please take advantage of nearby alternative parking lots or street parking. Be careful not to park in red or permit zones.

When you park in our parking lot, especially in the tandem parking spaces, please do not park leaving an open space in front of you and please do not park behind a car unless you park behind someone in your class.  If in doubt check with the front desk.

A public parking lot is located off Pacific Coast Highway behind the “Garlic Jo’s” restaurant on the north side of Pacific Coast Highway between the Sailing Center and Tustin Ave. You will need quarters for the parking meters in this lot.
