Engaged on Lavengro!

Lake Union Charters was honored to help make this beautiful couple’s engagement special.  Visiting from San Francisco but considering Seattle to be their next home, they decided to see Seattle from Lake Union on “Lavengro.”

The couple went to the bow to take “Titanic”-inspired photos and when Naima turned around, she found Naimish down on one knee.   Naima was completely surprised and happily accepted his proposal. We wish these two the best in their future together!

Local Family and Germans Sail into the Sunset

Joe brought his family, including two visiting German relatives out for a sunset sail on Lake Union last Saturday.  The German relatives are sailors of an alpine lake in the Alps and much enjoyed the juxtaposition of this urban aquatic adventure!  Joe was very interested in learning to sail so Captain Patrick gave him a taste of life at the helm.

While Captain Patrick gave Joe some sailing tips, the Germans taught us that  that many sailing terms are the same in German as they are in English, such as lazy Jacks and rudder or ruder in German. We enjoyed taking out such an engaging and curious group and loved giving visitors a different taste of sailing than what they may be used to.

Sailing with “Ride the Ducks” Captains

We had a great sail with several of the “Ride the Ducks” captains.  It was a sunny day and the wind was 0-8 knots.  Most of them had a chance to pilot the boat, which was a new experience for them.  We look forward to seeing all of them on Lake Union this summer!

Valentine’s Day Charter

We had a lovely Valentine’s Day Charter tonight.  The couple really enjoyed themselves. The skies were clear, there was wind on the water, and the stars were out. There were lanterns being released from Gas Works Park. It was truly gorgeous.
