Welcome to this virtual onboard experience! We will introduce ourselves and our passions, check out the ever-changing views of life afloat at anchor somewhere in San Francisco Bay, tour the boat (virtually) and have an extensive Q and A about what it’s like to live, work, cruise and raise a family aboard a floating home at sea! We talk sustainability and minimalism in practice afloat too. If you’ve ever watched the YouTube sailing channels like La Vagabond or Delos and wondered if that could be the life for you, I can help you think about where and how to begin. I have been doing it over 20 years and my kids are also older now than most popular sailing vloggers, so I can attest to the pros and cons of raising a family at sea off grid! While not always smooth sailing, it is by far a better life in so many ways than what’s normal on land and I can truly say this life afloat is worth all the challenges it brings and more! Sit down with a beverage of your choice at home, and be prepared for some sea stories! Bring your questions, and I’ll give you honest answers, salted and peppered with all that a life at sea entails. You can check out my Instagram feed @finedayforsailing and what guests have said about my In-person sailing experiences in San Francisco Bay, and hopefully when the time is right I can take you for an actual sail in person some day soon!
Sailing since I was 4 years old, and a licensed captain for about 20 years, I’ve raised 3 children aboard (now 16, 14 and 5) and cruised extensively along the California and Mexico coast as well as sailed professionally all over the world. I’ve hosted onboard experiences with Airbnb since the beginning and my logbooks are full of comments from people like you! I wish I could take you on board for a sail but in today’s reality we are focusing on what we CAN do, so welcome aboard and enjoy the (virtual) ride! We live in a very tiny footprint with a ecological perspective that most people have never experienced and if you’ve ever wanted to live a life closer to nature and less tied to the grid/grind, now is a great time to reflect and make new choices. Enjoy our views at anchor, powered by solar and wind, and ask me about life afloat!

"This experience will take place online, and you'll be receiving a private zoom link once booked. I’ll be at anchor aboard my live-aboard sailboat somewhere in San Francisco Bay, with stunning views and wildlife all around us. Exact location will be a surprise, but worth the expectations! Tides and weather determine where we need to anchor to be safe during this shelter in place, but I promise it will be of historical interest and unique!"

If you’d like to set your zoom background to a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge we will all appear to be together! (Not required, just fun). Come with your questions and I will be sure to answer them and take you virtual voyaging on San Francisco Bay! Best if viewed on a larger screen if possible.
