What you'll do

After a brief safety speech, we will shove off the dock and head into the scenic Charleston Harbor. As we raise the sails and turn the engine off, you'll immediately feel the relaxation set in and discover why the sailboat is named Mental Heeling. You'll be involved as much (or as little) as you prefer as we navigate the Harbor together. Tacking and gybing our way to the various landmarks including: Fort Sumter, The Battery, USS Yorktown, Castle Pinckney and the iconic Ravenel Bridge. Guests under the age of 13 will be required to wear a life jacket per the US Coast Guard. I will have adult and child life jackets onboard.

Captain Jay After being laid off from the Financial Industry in 2009 during the "Great Recession" I decided to migrate south and trade spreadsheets for sailing. In 2014, I purchased my 1988 30ft Catalina MKII and named her Mental Heeling as that is what she does best. Come out and see one of the most beautiful cities as it was meant to be seen, from the water.
