This meetup is for sailing adventures on-board "Angelique" Sailing adventurer's that are interested in ocean sailing should join this meetup for long trips such as the Pacific Cup, or shorter ones like a sail out around the Farallon Islands. Or even just a sail around the bay.
I will be running some fee based and some free trips, the fee's I charge go to pay a fraction of the costs of maintaining the boat. All the $ from fees goes either into maintenance (or for food and fuel when included) so that I can keep running these trips and share this fantastic boat and adventures with all of you.
Please join me for both types of trip, for comparison of costs, similar boats to mine charter in SF Bay for $300 per hour and the sister-ship to Angelique goes for $600/hr in Hawaii. What I charge by comparison is about the cost of a weekend day rental of a less than 40 foot boat from any of the bare boat fleet in the bay area. It should be obvious that I am not making any money at this.
Angelique is available for private charter as well so if you have a group of six friends that want to sail together lets plan a trip just for you. For charter rates contact me.
THIS IS A MULTI-DAY EVENT...
Angelique will be racing the Trans Pacific Yacht race this summer. The Transpac is the more serious race between the west coast and Hawaii, however like the PacCup I intend for this to be a FUN rewarding experience for the crew. A few people have already indicated that they want to go, but there are still some spots on the crew open.
I will be selecting crew with an eye on compatibility in addition so sailing ability
There is a significant time and $ commitment required for this event, including pre-race practice and races and up to 3 weeks for the race itself.
I will be asking each crew member to contribute $3500 to help cover the costs of this race and delivery of the boat back to the bay area afterwards.

"The 50th running of the classic Transpacific Race will kick off with the first starts on Wednesday, July 10, 2019. The Aloha sendoff events will be rocking Rainbow Harbor in Long Beach July 6th.
