Let’s go for a sail!

happy ending to a tough chapter… lots to be thankful for!


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!!

Dear Captain Heather
I am so glad to hear about the recovery of your son.
I would also like to express my thanks for the way you treated my daughter Suzy Carija. She told me about the wonderful sail you took her on and how much you love the boat. It pleased me no end. If ever you make a trip to the east coast it would be with open arms that we would receive you and your family and The Boat (formally Virginia) .
with kindest regards, Virginia

Thank you Virginia! And thank you so much for the photos! We had a good day on the Bay and any time any of the family are in town I’d be happy to take them out for a sail! Hope to get to the east coast one of these days, too! All the best, Heather


My husband would like to do a Farralon island sail for his 40th birthday. How much would this cost, and how many people could be accommodated (4-8 people)? I am thinking 3/5 or 3/6/16. We are in San Francisco. Thanks, Tiffany
