A Beautiful Weather Sailing Lesson
16 June 2013- 12:00 pm
Wind: S 2-4 knots
Weather: 68 degrees, Sunny with Scattered Clouds
Another fine lesson this afternoon. All this great weather certainly proves that Seattle summers are the best around, despite our city’s rainy reputation! And you may notice on the map below that we apparently sailed right out of the lake, up the hill, and into the Queen Anne neighborhood, which is either an advanced sailing technique, or a GPS error– I’ll let you be the judge!

Half-Day Adventure to Lake Washington
14 June 2013- 10:30 am
Wind: 6-14 knots
Weather: 59 degrees, Overcast
We had a wonderful half-day adventure today with a great group from the Midwest. When we started this morning, it was a little chilly and the skies were overcast, but there was great wind and plenty of time, so we headed through the channel to Lake Washington. After opening the drawbridges and causing some slight traffic delays for the cars (sorry about that!), we headed into the big lake. We sailed back around the barges near Highway 520, and saw the Friday traffic get backed up for the 520 bridge. It wasn’t us this time! Everyone took a turn driving, and all proved to be good sailors. As they say, it was an incredible experience, and tons of good times! Welcome to Seattle, and we hope to sail again with you soon!

12 June 2013- 8:30 pm
Wind: S 8-13 knots
Weather: 68 degrees, Mostly Cloudy, with Patches of Blue Sky
On tonight’s special date night charter, both clients were new to sailing, although the lady had sailed a little bit before. As the voyage began, we started with the main sail while the couple took turns driving. Later, to get the boat’s speed up, we added the jib and really started to cruise around the lake! It was a lot of fun. Then we settled the boat down and the couple went up front to enjoy the view. That’s when he asked her the big question. She said yes! What a way to start off an engagement. The wonderful winds made for great sailing, and it was all and all a great evening.

It was a great day on the water, and several people took turns at the helm and really got the boat moving in the afternoon winds. To quote one of the clients, “It was sail-a-riffic!”
