Dette kommer dere til å gjøre

From the happy moment you board HOBBES, to the sad time you have to step off her, you will be immersed in the Sailing life! Frank and his mate Karen are anxious for you to feel at home onboard HOBBES. You may participate, or not, as you are comfortable. Relax and enjoy the cruise, or help with sailing (weather permitting); Your choice. We both will provide step by step instructions for you so that you will become comfortable on the water. As HOBBES is a very large boat, for first timers, it can be a bit intimidating. We will provide overall instruction about the art of sailing, show you how to handle lines to rig the sails, show you how to steer appropriately according to the wind, and guide you in handling the sail sheets to properly adjust them. We will adjust our instruction to your experience level. Depending on the tides on that particular day, we may head several different ways out of the harbor. Each direction has its own challenges from varied wind to rushing currents. Frank & Karen will guide you constantly with detailed instruction so you can make it look easy to sail the 16 ton craft according to your whims. After 3 hours of honing your skills at tacking, beating, reaching, and other points of sail, we will re-enter Gig Harbor. You can even help moor Hobbes when we glide into the dock after your cruise! Don't miss your chance to cruise HOBBES!
Other things to note
HOBBES can be completely enclosed in the cockpit area for sailing in all types of weather. She is also heated inside (if necessary) and has a head (toilet) for guests. There is a lifeline all around the entire boat topside so you may wander about as you desire while underway.

Captain Frank has been sailing and boating for 41 years. Starting with 10 years in the US Navy as a Surface Warfare Officer, and culminating with his Master Mariner license, he has years of experience on the water. He began sailing while in the service in San Diego and promptly acquired a Catalina 22 on which he learned the art of sailing. Over the years he has sailed in various waters around the world. Frank has been plying the waters of the Puget Sound for the past 9 years and knows how to safely guide our 42 foot Catalina Sailing Yacht, HOBBES, to many interesting destinations.

Her skal du være

If you have time to see the sights while sailing, there are a number of views only accessible from the water. Waterfront homes on stilts enjoy a 200 foot stairway for access. The Narrows is home of some of the best fishing in the northwest due to the deep water and rushing currents. Point Defiance Park provides a sanctuary for wildlife including Bald Eagles. Seals, Whales, and even Orcas may visit close aboard during your sail...you never know.

What a great way to experience the sailing culture of the Pacific Northwest! Gig Harbor is a very charming town that is steeped in boating culture. Get there a bit early and take a walk along the water and enjoy the view of beautiful boats anchored in the harbor. Then meet your friendly hosts, Frank and Karen, and their meticulously maintained Catalina sailboat, Hobbes. We spent the afternoon sailing in Dacos Passage, just outside of the harbor. We had a lot of good wind and we sailed all points, from beating and healing, beam reach, and running wing on wing. We saw porpoises and plenty of harbor seals along the way. The day sail wrapped up with a gentle breeze back into the harbor. We had sailed inside the harbor for short while before heading back to the dock. It was a perfect day sail experience, highly recommended!

Beautiful yacht. They were very kind and clearly have a deep passion for sailing. Frank was great with teaching my kids (age 10-16) the ins and outs of commanding such a large sailboat. Would recommend for a family outing if your kids are older. Saw harbor dolphins and seals which was super cool.

Frank and Sarah were amazing hosts on our Airbnb experience sailing extravaganza. They cater to every type. Those that just want to observe and relax and feel the sun and those that want to learn to sail and be captain of the yacht. I took my boyfriend for a very special birthday and he gave me a big ole' kiss after - so he loved it! I did good by booking the experience. I highly recommend the Frank and Sarah sailing experience - 5 + stars!
