Winter Vashon 2016

Ahh Winter Vashon – lovingly sitting at the forefront of sailors minds as they think longingly all year long about this balmy jaunt around the last stronghold of hippiedom in the Pacific Northwest, Vashon Island.  At Just over 30 miles, it’s an easy 6 hour sail with those consistent south sound winds the area is […]

Race to the Straits 2015

CrossFit ain’t got nothin’ on STYC – If CrossFit had sailboats they would send their clients out double handed sailing in 12 to 14 knots of breeze against 2 to 3 knots of current and tell them the winner gets a free lifetime membership!
