Sadly, the sailing season passed us by this year. My son Julius was run over on the Fourth of July and very nearly lost his life but thanks to the great work of the emergency services and the surgeons at UCSF Oakland Children’s Hospital he has made a full recovery! We just came back from an ultrasound and though his pelvis is still broken, all internal organs appear to be working normally, so I feel we can finally close this chapter! The sailing community, led by Kirk Miller of Capt. Kirk’s Charters, pooled together to raise some money in Julius’ name and he was able to present them with a big check. This thanksgiving we have an awful lot to be thankful for, and we are back on the water sailing to celebrate! See you out there… and thanks to everyone who contributed, and especially Capt. Kirk for your generosity!!
Your safety is our greatest priority! This inspection is voluntary and not all passenger vessel owners are willing to go through the process of inviting the coast guard to check out their boat but I feel it is a great tool to make sure that I am doing the very best job for my passengers. Now let’s go sailing!
I have gone a little quiet on the blog for the past 6 months or so but I’ve been working on a very special project… New crew aboard! Welcome to the world Sawyer Richard Siegfried!
We just took a lovely sail out the gate for Opening Day and I’m excited for this new season. Baby Sawyer is still in training so you won’t see him on charters but Carodon, Gas Light and USA 76 are up and running for the season so book a sail with me today!
We are offering dinner and a movie this Saturday night in Dunphy Park to raise money for the Sausalito Community Boating Center. Yummy paella by Davey Jones and plenty of grog to wash it down, live music by Fiver Brown, free boat rides, popcorn by Drivers Market and a great new sailing movie- the perfect way to end the longest day of the year!
I recently skippered a trip for a couple visiting their son from France and he made this beautiful video… Thanks for sharing, Alex!
