I posted this in general forums
but may not have been the best place..so here goes in this section...
I have mostly been a lurker on these forums
for a while with only a few posts but have found this site to be a wealth of great info. We have a plan to purchase
and retire on a sailboat in about 5 years (will most likely buy within a year). In the mean time we would love to get a little more of a taste/experience just being on a multihull
. My family
(4 of us) will be vacationing in Oahu
late Feb 2016 and we hope to at the very least do a full day sail on one (preferably 35 to 45 ft).
My first thought was to check out the charter
options but found there are very little options for the type of sailing we wanted. Plenty of "party" type day sailors but not any true cruiser more personal type of sailing we want, where we can get to know the owner of the boat
and learn/hear first hand from them as we sail.
So my question, are there any multihull
cruisers on the island (or that will be there in Feb) willing to take us out for a day? And we are NOT looking for the type of sailing trip where we expect someone to hand us a fruity mixed drink, quite the opposite, the more hands on the better. Obviously we would also compensate the owner for the cost of the trip.
Thanks in advance for any response/guidance etc.
