We will be picking up two boats in Bellingham to explore the San Juan Islands! Currently sold out, you can call and waitlist in case we have a cancellation. We will not be booking group airfare. Everyone will book their own transportation and meet us in Bellingham, where we will have a hotel booked for one night. We will spend the next day shopping for provisions and preparing for the charter, staying on the boats one night before leaving to explore. Last time we did this trip we stopped at several beautiful anchorages and spent two nights in Victoria harbor. Wildlife is abundant, the scenery can't be beat, and there are some great out-of-the-way places to visit, have a drink, and enjoy local restaurants. Here are the photos from our 2012 San Juans trip! Total cost will be $2800 per cabin (members), $3300 per cabin (non-members), and includes the boats and hotel rooms! Dates are August 2 to August 11. The first deposit of $1400 will be due when you reserve your cabin, and the remaining $1400 will be due May 15. If you are interested, call Brandy or Matt and we'll be happy to answer questions about the trip. A sample itinerary is available here: San Juans 2018
So here we look at the basics of being underway and what to do even prior to raising the sail but let us first look at what is meant by basics. To revert to the basics is to not only reflect on the foundations of what you are doing but also become a little humble, and we all need to be humbler in this hyper-intense world....Click for complete article.
Be sure to get checked out on every boat you are eligible for. Scheduled checkouts are free and the more boats you are checked out on, the easier it is to get a boat for last-minute sailing all year! Remember, this email is accurate when I write it, but the live schedule is on our website and is subject to change!
