SV Defiance


Come sail San Diego aboard Defiance for a learning experience of a lifetime. Hoist the sails and take the helm, your professional captain is also an experienced sailing instructor.

Like most of our students learning to sail, the end goal is ocean sailing on a capable, safe boat. Defiance is that boat. The Ericson 39B was designed to be fast in light air and sail strong when momma nature gets grumpy. Below deck she’s a cabin in the woods and above deck she is spacious and fun to sail. Ericsons have been sailed across oceans by families and single handlers for more than 40 years. With modern production boats designs, the cost can be high out the door and when the seas pick up. The Ericson 39B is a classic for all the right reasons and looked up to by sailors in need of capability and comfort at sea.

With our winds building into the afternoon, this 4 hour sailing excursion gives you the option of sailing in the bay, on the open ocean, or both.
