Six hour sail on San Francisco Bay out of Alameda Saturday, July 30
- Ahoy All,I am thinking of Saturday, July 30 for a group sail for six on San Francisco Bay. Each person’s share of the cost would be $50 plus tip. Not so much dockside training but more time underway.No promise but the boat would likely be a Hunter 46 (this is not the exact boat but see http://www.sailingtexas.com/shunter46100.html).Are you interested? If so reply back.Anchors Aweigh,Phelpsnlsac at cwo dot com
Sailing evokes the freedom of flying through Earth's open spaces without the threat of random ejector seats or rush-hour goose traffic. Enjoy an avian-free excursion with today's Groupon for sailing adventures to NauticShare. All trips depart from Alameda.
• For $300, you get a six-hour sailing tour and lesson for six (a $1,100 value).
The boat would likely be a Hunter 46.
NauticShare's experienced crew schools nautical newbies and salient sailors alike, imbuing students with navigational prowess. In classes of up to six sailing students, the intrepid instructors bear down on the basics of boat anatomy, how to tack, jibe, and wail, and the crucial requirements of the major above-deck assignments, such as helm handling. Wave riders can also opt to eschew sailing for on-deck sun-worshipping while noshing on the provided snacks. The boat departs from its Alameda dock, sailing between Alcatraz and Angel Island, before looping around the storied prison, narrowly evading the shackles of temporally displaced prison guards, and returning to Alameda. Large groups can take advantage of the private introductory-sailing expedition, which enables sailors to bring their family, siblings, coworkers, or clingy imaginary friends. Although the selected sea steed may vary depending on availability, students will earn their chops on a Beneteau, Hunter, Hanse, or Jeanneau, all fine members of NauticShare's fleet.
