If you are looking for a romantic get-away, grab your sweetheart and join us for a weekend of seaside exploration, fine dining and fun as we embark on a two-day Valentine’s cruise to Sausalito, February 12-13.
We’ll leave Marina Bay in Richmond on Saturday morning (2/12), head out across the Bay, pass by Angel Island through Raccoon Strait and tie up at Schoonmaker Marina in Sausalito. After a quick lunch on board, you’ll be free to set out on foot to explore the diverse sights of Sausalito, from Galilee Harbor with its eclectic houseboats to the informative and fascinating Bay Model. Or head downtown to window shop. Or stop by the Sausalito Cruising Club to enjoy a libation and some sea shanties. Or rent a sea kayak and explore Richardson Bay. It’s all up to you.
Enjoy a romantic dinner in town, take a moonlit stroll back to the boat and retire to your private stateroom for a cozy night’s sleep on the water.
After Sunday breakfast on board, we’ll pull up the dock lines, raise the sails, head out across “the slot” toward San Francisco, and run along the city front where you’ll have views of San Francisco that you can’t get anywhere else. We’ll round Alcatraz and set our sights on our home port to return by 4pm.
This will be one Valentine’s weekend to remember, so don’t miss the chance to make it YOUR memory.
The trip includes:
Two sailing days aboard “Kuani”, a Cascade 42-ft ketch with Captain Ken and First Mate Janis
Lunch/appetizers: Saturday and Sunday
Drinks: Saturday and Sunday
Overnight stay aboard “Kuani” in Sausalito
The cost is $200/person ($400/couple) for this two-day cruise. We think you’ll agree this is a great value for a night’s stay in Sausalito with a lot of adventure included.
Like a restless pony, Kuani is tugging at her slip lines anxious to get back out and frolic on the Bay! Join us on January 29 as we hoist the sails and put her through her paces for a day of Bay sailing.
The fun starts at 10am when you meet us at the dock in Marina Bay, Richmond. We’ll head out for a tour of the central Bay where we’ll enjoy spectacular views of San Franscisco, Angel Island, Alcatraz, the bridges, Marin Headlands, Port of Oakland….Who knows? Maybe we’ll even spot some dolphins! After a full day of galloping about the Bay, we’ll return to Marina Bay by 4pm.
Bring a bag lunch and your beverage of choice (ice chest/refrigerator will be available on board). Remember to dress warm (pretend you’re going to the slopes!) and wear non-marking soled shoes. The cost is $80/person. Reserve your spot soon before it’s too late!
This year we hope to expand our charter schedule by offering bi-monthly sailing trips on the San Francisco Bay. Our first trip took place over New Years Eve, and included an overnight stay in Berkeley and a walk out to the end of the Berkeley Fishing Pier to watch the NYE fireworks display. A grand time was had by all who participated (crew included past participants and active crew as well). We’ll be posting our schedule as soon as it is finalized, but our next trip is gearing up as you read this!
Saturday, January 29th, join us for a day on the Bay! Kuani departs Richmond at 10:00 am and tour the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco city-front before returning to Richmond around 4:00 pm. Contact us for more details!
