"Beat The Heat" Flotilla

"Beat The Heat" Flotilla

 

“Beat the Heat Flotilla 2017”

San Juan Islands, Washington

September 1st –8th, 2017

 Join us for a week long cruise in the beautiful Pacific Northwest’s San Juan Islands this coming Labor Day.  This is the perfect time to escape the hot Texas summer for some cooler weather, spectacular scenery, and fantastic sailings.

The San Juan Islands are a magical archipelago of over 450 islands in Washington state.   If you enjoy unforgettable views, abundant sea life (Orcas, Humpbacks, Dolphins, etc), watching majestic eagles swooping in for their morning meals, Norman Rockwall like marinas, and bonfires on the beach in a place with rich history, come join us.

In early September, the winds fill back in after the summer lulls to make for pleasant day sails.  There is nothing like sailing in a nice breeze aided with a 3-knot current doing 9kts and then encountering a pod of orcas feeding on salmon, or the occasional humpback surfacing as they migrate south for winter.  We will guide you in navigating the currents, anchoring in large tidal swing inspiring coves, and handling / avoiding potential foggy conditions. 

For more information, call our office.
