We invite sailors of every race, creed, color, nationality, religion, gender, or sexual orientation. We strive to assemble compatible and congenial crews building trips from groups of people with similar interests and backgrounds.

Our personal interest is in being ecologically sound, instructive, and inspiring. We do not tolerate drunkenness or inappropriate behaviour. Come to enjoy the beauty of the islands, the pleasure of the sailing, and the friendship of the people.

We enjoy family groups and work well with children (suggested age for sailing cruises is six year-olds and older who know how to swim). We are comfortable with a variety of lifestyles and interests.
