Friday Harbor to Astoria (106)


Join us aboard Journeyman as we sail from Friday Harbor to Astoria in preparation for the Oregon Offshore. This time of year the NW winds begin to return making this a downwind trip and a wonderful opportunity to learn how to handle an asymmetrical spinnaker offshore and drive a downwind surfing machine that is the Cal 40.

Two captains and instructors to supervise the non stop sailing.

On this trip you will learn.

-Vessel traffic

-Night sailing

-Offshore route planning

-Coastal navigation (ASA 105 is a prerequisite for the 106 certification)

-Tides and currents and bar crossings

-How to use modern navigation equipment like: AIS, Chart plotters, PC based plotters, VHF, Ipad and smartphone based applications.

All GBA passages are hands on. All crew are expected to participate on all levels of the boat’s operation.

$1500 each with a crew of four.
