A wonderful spring evening and a chance to watch the sailboat races on Lake Union first hand. Light winds made for a lovely sail watching all the races sail into the sunset.
What a great day to sail! We where joined by 6 lovely clients. Everyone was really hands on and eager to help raise the sails and drive the boat. It was a clear night on the water with very few other boats. We are glad we could show both locals and those from Brooklyn a great evening on the water. More pictures.
It was a great time on the water this weekend. It was pretty light winds, but we still managed to sail around Lake Union. We even had some of the guest take their turn steering the boat. A great way to end the weekend.
A lovely couple, visiting from the Boulder area, acknowledges that Seattleites are fibbing about how much it rains! It’s safe to say they enjoyed their sail with clear and sunny skies. During their sail, Captain Larry told his tales of the sea and leaving everything behind to make them happen.
Although the weather was a bit windy, this happy couple got engaged! Clinton proposed to his girlfriend on Lavengro with the Seattle skyline lights falling behind them – a great opportunity to say yes!
Congratulations you two!
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!
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.
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!
A great sail, with a wonderful couple. Hope to see you back on the water soon!
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.
