Ever wonder how those nice, neat loops get into the ends of dock-lines? We know someone who can teach you! We've set up the splicing seminar with our rigger, Ryan from Rogue Rigging, on Saturday, March 25 at 10am. The cost is $20/person, call or email us to reserve your spot!
Tonga! November 16-28, 2017!- Wait List Only - We can't wait! Only 15 cabins total. Check your calendar and call us to get on the wait list! Here's the first paragraph of the flyer for you to drool over:
Situated midway in the Pacific Ocean between Tahiti and Fiji, the Kingdom of Tonga is comprised of 171 islands in four distinct groups: Tongatapu, Ha'apai, Vava'u, and Niuas. Nuku' alofa on the main island of Tongatapu is the capital of this constitutional monarchy. The jewels of the exotic cruising grounds of a Tonga sailing vacation are the hilly and wooded coral islands of Vava'u. Miles of white-sand beaches, coral reefs, and crystal clear waters make Tonga one of the world's top snorkeling and scuba diving venues. Visibility is often 150 feet. The abundance of snug anchorages, more than 40 of them, combined with the close proximity of the islands to one another is very similar to cruising in the British Virgin Islands. The reefs assure calm waters while the trade winds assure excellent sailing virtually every day. It's no surprise, then, that Vava'u is a sailor's paradise, where the delights of a Tonga yacht charter inspire fond memories that last a lifetime.
Of course this one is more expensive than La Paz, mostly due to airfare. Our prices are double-occupancy (per cabin), including airfare & transfers for two people. On this trip, full provisioning is included (buy your own drinks, of course).
Today is Thursday and I have a bareboat class going as I write this. Class started Sunday and will continue next Saturday and Sunday. Last night I received an email from one of the students with a list of questions she had come to mind over the past few days. ...Click for complete article.
Members Note: We've moved many of the boats! You can download a current dock map from the 'Member Resources' section of the message board. Remember, our checkout sheets have a blank to write down the slip number now so that you won't forget it before you come back - don't rely on docking next to a particular boat that was there when you left - it may not be there when you return!
We've had a name change! The Catalina-34-Formerly-Known-As-Pink Slip is now Ohana!
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!
