I like to consider myself something of a professional charter sailor. I’ve booked dozens of vacations under sail for myself and for others, and have read and written numerous articles on making chartering better, smarter, cheaper and more fun. So what could a charter broker possibly tell me that I don’t already know?
I wasn’t that surprised when the jib car came off in my hand. I had gone forward on Joker, our chartered Beneteau Cyclades 50.5, because my crew wanted the headsail lead adjusted. The wind was light and although a three-foot jib track on a 50-foot boat wasn’t going to have that much impact...
For sailors living in the northern United States, summer is the season to stay local and enjoy the precious few months of good weather. But every now and again, it’s good to branch out, book a flight and seek other adventures.
