San Juan Islands "Share the Sail/Power"

This is not for everyone, but there may be a few folks here that might be interested in spending a week this summer August 7-13 cruising the San Juan Islands on a charter flotilla.

Bob Bitchin of Cruising Outpost (creator of Latitudes & Attitudes) is bringing back his popular "Share the Sail" events. The magazine charters boats in a beautiful cruising area and fans/readers from all over get a stateroom (single or double occupancy) and spend a week having lots of fun. The flotilla is starting out with a Nordic Tug 54 and a DeFever 48 in addition to a couple of 50-foot Beneteaus. Bob and Jody will probably be on the NT54. My wife and I will be leading the flotilla aboard our boat. Definite stops include Sucia Island and Friday Harbor, with Stuart Island, Rosario Resort or Eastsound possibilities.

The cruise will end in Anacortes at Cap Sante Marina for the 16th Annual PNW Cruisers Party, which is free for anyone to attend. Cruising Outpost sponsors the party (including the beer!), and the last time we were in Anacortes we had around 75 local boats and about 500 people at the music/dance.

Here's a link for information, which includes a "special episode" of Latitudes & Attitudes I made from our last Share the Sail event in the San Juan Islands in 2010 (it never aired): Share The Sail - Cruising Outpost Magazine

When I was making the TV show we went on these Share the Sails in really cool places like Tonga, the BVI, New Zealand, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and they really are a lot of fun. BUT, it helps if you're a social person and like to meet new friends and discover new places to cruise.

If you've always wanted to see what the Pacific NW and the San Juans in particular are like, this would be a fun way to do it!

I will likely be blasting through the San Juans at that time heading North to Desolation Sound. Maybe be I can wave as I go by?
