Sail aboard Shanty from Richmond Marina Bay Harbor
Please sign up on the waitlist. At least two days before the day, I will select the best crew for this sail and confirm your spot. I prefer to take up to 4 people. If selected, please make sure to be on time as the tides do not wait for anybody. If you are not sure about your ability to deal with motion sickness, please sign on the next sail within the Bay limits. Shanty is 1988 Catalina 34 sloop with a self-tacking jib. She is moored at Marina Bay Yacht Harbor in Richmond. I will provide location details to the chosen crew members. "Always be prepared for cold and wet conditions, regardless of weather and season. Summer months are usually very windy. Dress in layers with outer shell being wind and water proof. Synthetics are better than cotton. Warm and tight hat is recommended. It’s always a good idea to have a set of warm and dry clothes to change to. Trust me on this one. Please wear white-sole or non marking shoes. Don’t forget the sunscreen. Please use a bathroom on land before we go, even when you feel you don’t have to. The boat has a head (bathroom) but using it underway is difficult and I try to limit the trips to the pump out station to a minimum. The boat has all the safety equipment required by USCG, including life jackets (PFD’s) for everyone on board, First Aid Kit, fire extinguishers, flares, VHF marine radio and GPS." (Thank you Richard). I enjoy company of people who are passionate about sailing, whether they have plenty of experience under sail or just started learning.

What we're about

Public Group

We are about passing on the passion of sailing.

This group is about getting you connected with other people on boats to enjoy the pleasures of working together using just Wind and Water to get where you want to go.

No matter what your experience level, whether you are stuck on land, and think you'd like to try sailing, or have a boat and need crew, we are dedicated to helping you realize your dreams.

The truth is that to go sailing, you have to connect to sailors. We provide you the opportunity to get connected to group members who sail. These sailors host events and use the RSVP system associated with the software platform we use to facilitate those events.

NOTE: we are a social network, not a sailing club, yacht club or school. We are not a charter operation or an organization that schedules or acts as an agent for charters. We are a network of skippers and sailors. Some of the skippers in our network host events that members can attend, and we use the MeetUp Platform to facilitate that. Each Member of the Network, Skipper and sailor is responsible for learning and adhering to applicable laws and regulations. When you joined MeetUp to join this network, you agreed to certain terms of conditions that extend to the organizers, co-organizers, assistant organizers, and event hosts that use this platform to post events, which are called 'meetups' by the company that provides the software platform we use.
