Join us as we sail this beautiful 43 foot Wauquiez Amphitrite ketch from San Diego to Seattle this November. Actual departure date TBD based on crew availability and weather window. The passage is expected to take two week and may be broken into two or three legs. Send in your sailing CV today to see if can join the crew.
For those wanting a preview of their own Baja-Ha-Ha, or the coastal sailing experience without the inconvenience of boat ownership, consider coming aboard an Island Packet 350 for a downwind cruise to San Francisco. For those with the prerequisite certification, this passage will earn Advanced Coastal Cruising Certification. The Island Packet 350 is very comfortable and safe example of a modern displacement cruising yacht. Equipped with the comforts you would expect from a boat of its kind. It has a large refrigerator, freezer and a dodger. This trip is for those looking for a more laid-back introduction to coastal passage making.
The Passage is expected to take up to 7 days.
The prerequisites for the Advanced Coastal Cruising Certification are ASA 101, 103, 104, and 105.

The 1982 C&C Landfall is a fine example of a performance-oriented cruiser. This trip is early in the year for heading south so we will be looking for crew with flexibility in their schedules. We will be crossing the Columbia River Bar so we will not attempt this passage with anything but a favorable forecast.
