Cultural immersion
Guests felt absorbed in a community or culture.

What you'll do

Get a taste for what an awesome experience living, working and voyaging on a classic sailboat can be, while viewing fantastic landmarks from the uncrowded deck of " Alsager ", using sustainable and eco friendly wind power. Perhaps choose an evening sail, and enjoy a wonderful sunset. We will be outside only, with plenty of space, breathing clean Pacific air!

Get a little salty while we sail and chat about what it's like going far from land and crossing oceans, from endless waves and wind, to calm nights under starry skies. Get a feel for what it's like to live and thrive in a constantly moving small space, in a beautiful but unforgiving environment.

Hear what it's like to battle Tuna and Sailfish while under sail, and have the freshest sushi minutes later. And to anchor in tropical anchorages, bathe in the sea, and surf uncrowded waves right from the boat.

Ask as little or as much as you like about surviving storms, living in foreign countries, meeting great cruising friends, and unplugging from normal living to find another path. Perhaps, ask how you can get started yourself.

Spend time aboard a unique, rugged, beautiful boat with numerous Atlantic Ocean crossings and a Panama Canal transit under her belt, that has provided a safe and peaceful haven for her crew over the span of five decades in a green, earth friendly fashion.

I'm passionate about voyaging and the sailing lifestyle, and living and working on boats around the world. I grew up in Canada sailing and racing small boats, and I have just returned from a year long cruise in Alsager to Mexico's Gold Coast and the Sea of Cortez with my wife, young son, and dog Noah on board. Recently, I have sailed over 15,000 miles, including a passage from Hawaii to Seattle. See more photos on Instagram @sanfranciscosailingawesomeness.

Such a lovely experience! We had guests visiting and this was a great experience for them to view all of San Francisco. The boat ride was super relaxing, weather was impeccable and host was great and chill. If you are looking for a low key, relaxing activity to enjoy to see beautiful views of the bay and the Golden Gate Bridge I highly recommend!

I have been out on the bay before and this was a great experience. If it's your first time out on San Francisco's Bay, you won't be disappointed. The instruction and information provided by Evan was great. We went out to the Golden Gate Bride for some spectacular views! Couldn't be happier with the experience!

I am so glad I booked this event with Evan on my trip. Evan is a fantastic host and so much knowledge about sailing and bay area. I had a wonderful sailing with Evan. Evan is passionate about sailing and shared with me a lots of amazing stories about his lovely boat and even recommended me a great restaurant nearby. I highly recommend everyone to join Evan's sailing trip and you won't regret it

Great experience! Strongly recommend for anyone visiting SF for another perspective of the city and Golden Gate Bridge. If you love being on the water, then this is a must!
