Desolation Sound/The Broughtons Aug-Sep 18

Our usual sailing partners can't go with us this year and we're looking for folks who would like to join us.

Who: We are three experienced sailors (former live-aboards and ex-Navy skipper) in our 60's, now charterers rather than owners.

When: Get on the boat in Nanaimo on 8/24, depart Nanaimo early on 8/25; return to Nanaimo on 9/8. Although we would prefer someone for the entire two weeks, it's possible for someone to break it up for just a week. You can fly in/out from the area through several float plane companies.

What: We've reserved a Lagoon 42, Water Dragon. (Yes, we know cats and have sailed/owned a number of them.) Owner's version (3 cabin/3 head), so you would have a cabin/head to yourself.

Where: We are planning to quickly get up to Desolation/Broughtons so we can spend the bulk of our time enjoying the area. We've sailed the area five times before, so we're acquainted with the various challenges, but also know the anchorages well.

Details: This is a charter-share arrangement. We handle that by figuring the "per person/per day" costs for boat + expenses and dividing accordingly. Being on the 'older' end of the age spectrum, we are not a party-boat, preferring the journey and enjoying the destination. We are not big drinkers (in fact, friends of Bill W are welcome), but don't mind light drinking (just bring your own). We enjoy sight-seeing and wildlife-seeing, as well as dayhikes, eating great food, playing games in the evening, and of course, sailing!

Although we have lots of experience, we don't mind newbies, at all. In fact, if you're inexperienced to sailing/cruising but curious and want to get an extended taste of what it's like, this would be a great trip for you. We're happy to teach!

While it would probably be easier for PNW natives, we don't mind making arrangements for someone flying in to either Seattle or Vancouver. We would like to do a meet-up (either in person or Skype) before finalizing things, just to look at compatibility. Even big boats get awfully small if you're not getting along!

How to get more info: Reply to the thread and/or PM me!

Looking forward to it, we always have a great time!

Very good description of what sounds like a nice charter share opportunity.

I appreciate your attention to detail and forethought.

I wish all skippers did as well.

Bon Voyage!

Thanks! It's been my experience in many things, and most especially sailing, that a bit of attention to the details, as well as forethought, almost always makes things go much smoother!
