    BAY DAY SAIL

    • Boat Name: Dufour 412GL
    • Skipper: TBD 

    Bay sails are recreational and designed to build experience and provide an enjoyable time. They can be also a terrific training experience. You will find both novice and expert sailors making it a great chance to learn more. If you are interested in any particular technique, you can request the skipper to review it with you and the crew.

    If you prefer to chill out, just sit back, relax and enjoy the sailing near (or under) the Bay Bridge, alongside old lighthouses, and even a stop for lunch at a dockside bar.

    Bay sails are an amazing way to progress towards your Bay Skipper certification, refresh your knowledge acquired through ASA or other programs, "upgrade" your ASA101/103 experience, prepare for ASA104 (or your first Caribbean charter), or to introduce someone else to the world of sailing.

    Bay Sail - Labor Day Raft-Up (3-day sail)

    Boat: Dufour 520GL Monohull

    Skipper: John O'Connor

    This is a multi-day social sail over the Labor Day weekend. We depart the marina on Saturday and meet other boats on the bay, raft-up, and spend the day on the water.

    The first night we anchor, and then reconnect with the other boats. On the second night (Sunday), we dock at Harrington Harbor North and have dinner at Dockside, get take out, or prepare meals on the boats (at each crew's preference).

    Monday we return to our home ports.

    This is a great multi-day experience, where you get to experience the liveaboard style, plus you get to raft-up with other boats. The sail is a great time to practice any skills you may need for a certification, or just to make sure you keep them sharp. If all you want is relax, there will be multiple fore-decks where you can do so.

    Registration price only covers charter costs. Additional costs such as food, pump-out, fuel, and slip fees will be shared by the crew.

    The charter boat is a monohull with four cabins (sleeping eight). You can check it out here (layout 2)

    Location: Click for direction to Port Annapolis Marina

    POC: Pablo Destefanis

    Have questions? Please check our FAQ.

    Depending on interest, we may be able to fill a second boat. Add your name to the waiting list if sail fills up.

    A maximum of 2 FVSMs may be used for this sail. If you are using an FVSM(s), select the applicable MDRU with FVSM(s) payment option. FVSMs may not be combined with the 1st Timer Discount. Please check the FVSM spreadsheet to make sure you have FVSM(s) available before choosing either of these pricing options.
