Friends and Fellow Sailors: Welcome aboard! Our idea here is that the "3Day/2Night SailQuest Join-In Sailing Event" is a fun and easy going live aboard sailing experience.

This relatively short live aboard sailing voyage is a good place to start if you have never been on a Join-In sailing event.

More experienced sailors will welcome the chance to add more seamiles to their logbooks and have a great time along the way.

So, do you want to go for a sail? I hope you do and we look forward to sailing with you soon.

Please contact me directly if you would like to sign up or if you have any additional questions.

Thank you,

Capt. Tim
