Happy Guests!

Scout has been sailing with charter guests for about three weeks now, and we’ve been having a great time!  We’ve done a bit of

Katie’s Birthday Adventure!

Happy Birthday Katie!

Happy Birthday Katie!

Our Power Island cruise was such a blast!  We took three couples out on a spectacular Saturday and headed for the island.  We could not have asked for better conditions to celebrate 29 year old Katie’s birthday.  With crystal clear skies and a 10-15 knot breeze, we made good time sailing upwind and dropped the anchor at 11:30.  Captain Dave shuttled everyone ashore for a picnic and a couple of hours of exploration.  Dave and deckhand Michael worked on a few projects aboard Scout, before returning to pick up our adventurers for the journey home.  But before raising anchor a few of the intrepid group took a swim in the crystal clear water of Grand Traverse Bay.

With the anchor up and the genoa (the headsail on the front of the boat) set we relaxed on a blissful downwind run back to Traverse City.  Lindy even broke out some delicious homemade cupcakes to celebrate Katie’s special day!  Upon our return to CenterPointe Marina our happy band departed for the next stop on the birthday adventure trail.

A Note of Thanks

We want to share this thoughtful “thank you” note we received from Crystal and James, a lovely couple who joined us for a “Sail and Stay Package” this past Saturday.  They write:

“Captain Dave,

We wanted you to know how much we enjoyed our time on your vessel.  Scout is a most beautiful yacht.  Thank you for this opportunity to experience it/her.  Maybe in the near future we shall try a day trip so that we can go the island we spoke about.  We will definitely spread the good word of our experience here.

Many thanks and good wishes on your future sails.

P. S. – We will remember this day for the rest of our lives.  Thank you.”

Thank you, Crystal and James, for the kind words and for allowing us to share Scout with you!  We look forward to that island trip in the future.
