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 land Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Sailfish while under a full spread of sail and have the freshest sushi minutes later, to anchor in tropical anchorages, bathe in the sea, and surf endless, 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. And 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 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.

Great experience and views. Good value for money. Evan was very friendly and helpful, stopping at the perfect spots to watch the sunset and letting us know where to sit for the best experience. I recommend bringing blankets for warmth and to sit on and you’ll have the best time!

It was nice to experience being on a sail boat for the first time but for the cost I expected to go closer to the scenery of the city. Plus we were going really slow and didn’t even open the second sail. Evan did adjust his online schedule to accommodate our preferred time which we really appreciated and we had a nice conversation.

Evan was an incredible host! We booked at the last minute and Evan gave us a truly one of a kind and memorable experience. He even went the extra mile and provided jackets for my friend and I so we got to watch the sun set over the Golden Gate Bridge warmly! What a dream.

Evan is so kind & worked with me last minute to make this trip happen for my boyfriends birthday. He even extended it since we were late. This trip is insanely beautiful. I’d highly recommend!

Evan took our party on a great tour around the bay, which gave us the change to take in beautiful views, memorable landmarks, and a whole range of the bay's sea life. Evan was extremely friendly, happy to chat with us, and was laid back and professional. We had a great time, and it was a pleasure to spend the time on his fantastic boat.
