A Frequently Asked Question:  “The forecast says 50% chance of rain, will it rain on my sail?”

This is a common summer forecast in this area. The majority of time we will see little or no precipitation. We watch the weather radar carefully and will cancel in the event of extended periods of heavy rain.

Our summer sailing season begins Memorial Day weekend!

Prices do not include gratuity for crew.
