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

    Boat: Sun Odyssey 449

    Skipper: Ross Rosiak

    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, join the rafting boats, and spend the day on the water.

    Location: TBD

    The first night (Saturday) we anchor in the vicinity of the rafting boats. On the second night (Sunday), we dock in a Marina (TBA) and have dinner at local restaurant (TBA), 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.
