Enjoy the best sailing waters in the San Juan Islands aboard the 32′ traditional wood vessel SIMPLICITY. Rosario Resort is located on the fiord-like sound known as Eastsound, where there is great sailing conditions all summer.
THIS IS A SAILING EXPERIENCE, NOT A WHALE WATCH EXPERIENCE
SIMPLICITY was built in 1975 in Rockport, Maine by Penobscot Boatworks. She is a reproduction of the Eastport Pinkey Sloops used in the sardine fishery in the late 1800’s. Designed for large cargo capacity and speed under sail, she makes seaworthy, comfortable sailing vessel. She is a gaff rigged sloop, 32′ on deck and 43′ overall. You will no doubt look back on sailing her as a memorable experience. She is well equipped with the required US Coast Guard safety gear.
There is absolutely no experience required, only the ability to get on board, have a seat or join in sailing the boat in the best place in the islands to sail, Eastsound. You can sit back and enjoy the sail or help sail the boat if you like. This is a great family activity with a limit of only six guests per trip.
Besides our two hour sails we also do full day trips (about six hours) to an anchorage where we can go ashore, and take a hike. Back on board we’ll have lunch and then a nice sail back to Rosario Resort. Sounds good doesn’t it?
Tom Averna and Nate Averna are very well known sailors here on Orcas Island. Tom has sailed half way around the world. Nate has worked aboard tall ships and had done yacht deliveries in far away ports.
