With up to 5-6 people, one boat will work for everything.
for more people, we will have a second boat for the overflow sleeping arrangements, but use one boat for sailing on Saturday.
If you need to return Saturday night after the sail, those needing to return could take a separate car.
Expect about $120 per person for the boat rental and $25 per person per night for sleep over nights on the boat, plus Saturday dinner money. Usually it is around $180 per person total.

FAQ Section and general info:
No sail experience necessary. We run the boat, but you are welcome to join in and everyone can get time at the helm if you like.
What to bring:
Sleeping - 2-3 bed sheets works well or a lightweight sleeping bag. Your own pillow is always nice. While the boats have air conditioning, sometimes it is weak, then some cabins are cold.. each boat sleeps 6 with 2 in a berth in front, 2 in back berth, then 2 single couch/beds in the galley in the middle, so you get a better space if you bunk with someone. We get an extra boat for overflow people to sleep.
Food: We bring Sat Am breakfast to make on the boat (bacon/eggs & fruit) We can plan for vegetarian if needed. Then we provide water, ham & chicken & cheese & chips for sandwiches for lunch on the boat. Bring your own alcohol.
