I am posting here in the Bellingham travel forum because tripadvisor sent me an email saying this was the best place to put it. For all you sailors (or would be sailors) out there looking for sailing lessons, coastal cruising, or bareboat charters you should really consider San Juan Sailing. They are based in Squalicum Harbor, Bellingham (next to the Yacht club at Gate 3). I took a one week Learn-n-Cruise with Clint Najera on the 'Chinook' (a Beneteau 37). Fabulous experience and it made me competent to charter 'Wave Dancer' (a Hunter 34) the following week. Absolutely the best way to see the San Juans is by boat. Rick, Danelle, Jeni were all very easy to work with.
