You’ll jump right into the sailing lifestyle as an active crew member by engaging in all aspects of a sailing trip including deploying safety equipment, setting sails, steering, navigation, anchoring, weather analysis, cooking, and cleaning. Each participant will receive key tasks according to his/her level of experience. This is not a boring technical sailing lesson or a certified course, it is a full-day hands-on experience onboard a 36-foot cruising sailboat where you will take away key lessons from this lifestyle. You will be in the company of two certified US Coast Guard sailors who will guide you through all exercises regardless or your level of experience. Not all will be training and working the sails, a swim break and leisure time are planned around lunch time; sailing is supposed to be fun right? So if you are planning to embark on a sailing adventure on your own, if you dream of sailing your boat to remote locations, then join us for this invaluable practice session packed with information and a strong focus in hands-on exercises.
I am a passionate sailor, USCG licensed captain and former cruiser/liveaboard. I started sailing in Biscayne Bay where I learned the basics in a small sailboat and soon after my wife, daughter and I moved aboard our boat and sailed to the Caribbean for a period of two years. I love taking others for short sailing trips as it allows to combine my passion for sailing and my dream of introducing people to the art of living and traveling on a sailboat.
Lunch, snacks and soft drinks will be provided.
US Coast Guard approved life vests
All activities will take place onboard the sailboat except for docking maneuvers at the marina. We will be sailing most of the day in the waters of Biscayne Bay Marine Park. Some navigation exercises will take place in the proximity of historical Stiltsville around 2 nautical miles from mainland.
最多可供4位年滿18歲的旅人參加。 Minimum two guests. You are welcome to book the boat for one person too but you must pay for two guests.
你需要提供一張與你身份證明文件上的相片相符之相片。 以便Airbnb確認是次體驗的參加者。 你只需進行此步驟一次。
This is not a certified course. In sailing, I believe that practical experience is king and that is exactly what I intend to offer. PLEASE SEND ME A MESSAGE WITH YOUR DATE(S) BEFORE BOOKING! THANKS.
