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.

Request a custom day/time if you wish!

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 10,000 miles, including a passage from Hawaii to Seattle. Prior to departing, I spent many years working around the world for America's Cup Race Management, setting courses for race yachts, and now do the same for SailGP.

We enjoyed a wonderful afternoon on Evan’s boat. His communication was excellent and took all the right safety precautions. Would highly recommend and was nice to get out and enjoy the fresh San Francisco Bay air whilst watching the sunset under the golden gate.

This was such an amazing experience! Evan was super sweet and chill. Came onto this experience by myself and was more than comfortable joining with another couple. Would definitely do again!

An afternoon of sailing on the bay couldn’t have been better. Evan is easygoing, thoughtful, prompt, & obviously a very skilled sailor. We felt completely comfortable during these covid times, and heartily recommend the experience if you are visiting the area. The dock is easy to get to, parking not a problem. What a unique way to see the GGBridge, the city, and surrounds. Also a few happy seals & dolphins.

Beautiful day on the San Francisco Bay. Great views of the city and Golden Gate Bridge. Evan was very knowledgeable handling his boat. There was never a concern regarding our safety.
