Sailing Club

Join a Sailing Adventure...

Join us or our favorite charter/adventure group leader, David Kory, on one of our sailing adventures!

Charter trips involve sharing a large charter yacht with fellow adventurers and offer the opportunity to explore exotic parts of the world while sharing the cost of the accommodations.

Coastal trips offer the opportunity to gain experience sailing the challenging California Coast, see our beautiful coastline from a new perspective, and visit some destinations that you can't reach by land.

Upcoming Charter Trips  

  • Belize -- October 8-18, 2014: Unique and unspoiled, Belize is the hidden gem in our backyard. With one foot in the Central American jungle and the other dipped in the Caribbean Sea, Belize boasts miles of beautiful coral reefs, tropical rainforests, exotic wildlife and a rich cultural history. Just a 2 hour flight from Miami, it has the world's second largest barrier reef, tropical weather, warm clear waters, soft sandy beaches, Mayan culture and ruins, diverse jungle habitats with jaguars, tapirs, monkeys, toucans and macaws, and to top it all off it is the only country in Central America where the official language is English.

  • Tahiti -- August 5-15, 2015: There is no place on this earth like Tahiti. The warm clear waters, white sand beaches, swaying palm trees, coral reefs surrounding idyllic lagoons- this is the original inspiration for paradise. If you have dreamed of sailing and exploring a piece of the south seas tropics, where at Latitude 16 South the warmest summer day is 95, and the coldest winter night is 75, where high tide is always at noon and midnight, where Polynesian traditions and culture mix with warm French baguettes and pastries in perfect harmony, this is the trip for you.
