Racing – Sailboat Style
For groups of unto 12 people – up to 6 people of each boat.Why just ride on a boat which has raced? Take the challenge of ACTUALLY racing another sailboat during your 2 ½ -hour or half day charter. Be an active crew member, taking the helm and handling sails and lines during an actual race. Of course, if you don’t want to be an active member of the race, your welcome to ride along for the fun adventure and learning experience. Learn how modern sailboats sail into the wind. Or what all the lines (ropes to non-sailors) do? When to use them! A sailboat is a lot like an airplane – many of the same principles apply. There are a lot of controls and instruments. Learning to use them properly takes training and experience. The captains on both of these boats are also Pilots!
Put part of your group on a monohull sailboat that will heel over like the above image (Knot the Office operated by U.S.C.G. Master Captain Paul) and the other part of your group on our partners stable yet fast catamaran (Bucket List, operated by U.S.C.G. OUPV Captain Joel). Your group is sure to have an unforgettable afternoon of fun, adventure, challenge, and sense of accomplishment.
