A great way to spend an evening outdoors! I've been taking out a lot of sailors but it is really fun to share with folks who don't normally get a chance to sail on a classic wooden sloop. Here are two links to photos taken in the sailing group and another meetup group: http://www.meetup.com/bayarea-outdoor-adventure-group/photos/1386811/23387651/#23387931 http://www.gotwaw.com/photos/all_photos/?photoAlbumId=1450891 We meet at the dock in Berkeley and spend a little time getting to know one another while we have a glass of wine and get ready. We sail out and watch the sunset and then the lights of the city light up. Sometimes it is windy and spray blows across the boat. Sometimes it is calm and we sit and drink more wine and watch the moonrise. Everyone who wants to gets a chance to steer the boat and learn the basics of sailing. We get back to the dock between 9 and 9:30 and we are totally done by 10 usually. I am a licensed United States Coast Guard Master 50 GRT's and a registered US Sailing instructor. A moonlight sail isn't a sailing lesson but it can be a great start to see if you are interested. There is nothing like being powered by the wind in one of the most beautiful places in the world. It is an amazing experience. For more info and photos you can check out my website or facebook: www.captdan.net http://www.facebook.com/pages/Capt-Bohn-Classic-Sails/#!/pages/Capt-Bohn-Classic-Sails/105368432858322 I've never posted to the Everything Outdoors group before but I hope this is of interest. If the donation is a problem for you please e-mail me! Sailing is a basic human right and I'll make sure you can get out on the water! dan@captdan.net captbohn@gmail.com THERE IS LIMITED SPACE ON THE BOAT!!!! Usually the boat fills up super fast. If that happens I will confirm spots via e-mail and edit the meetup to say it is full.
