Hello. We miss our sailboat stuck in Skagway. My partener and l would live to sail. I have a good sailing expérience, day skipper / costal navigation ISPA and could support beguiner. She had less experience, but spent time on sail boats and want to learn. Once the border will open, we will be happy to have you on our sailboat. We are super motivated and are looking to sail as much ad we can, either me, her or both. Weekend or evening are fine. Also we have a good Zodiac that we could trade for your boat.
Does anybody know where I can get a forestay shortened? I could cut it myself, but then I need the loop crimped. Or who sells the tools to do the crimping myself?
I have an old spinnaker that we used on our Bayfield 32. The material is old and not reliable for sailing anymore but it would be great for a sailing decorative theme. As long as it would go to a good use it is free. Mike 633-6603
Thank you for a nice final evening on the water tonight. We are so hooked for next year!
Anyone with experience will be interested and aviable to sail a 33 ft sailboat boat from Seattle to Skagway. 1st leg to prince rupert second leg to skagway. 2 week each. Starting sometime in June. Please pm.
So when will the regatta schedule be released? :P
That was a great time last night - thank you!
Hey Everyone. I've set my fireball back up next to the club on the weekend. If anybody is up for a sail sometime let me know! 😁
Thanks from Midnight Sun Dive Club for letting us use the access - it worked out great!
