My husband wanted to have a sailboat experience the day of his birthday, which was December 20th. So off we went...myself, my husband, and our 7 year old son. We couldn't have asked for better weather (70F !) and a nice breeze. We were met by Alan, the captain and his wife Kaete. Their enthusiasm for having us aboard their boat was genuine and they were beyond welcoming! We had brought aboard a "picnic" style lunch from The Fresh Market, which Kaete put below and served to us with plates and napkins later on. Kaete had pirate hats for my son to wear, stories to tell him and Capt. Alan kept him fascinated, even letting him steer the boat and showing him all the ropes, literally! We all had a blast and they were very accommodating! Alan gave my husband some basic instruction and then let him take the wheel for a good part of our sail. I know he loved it from the look on his face. I wanted to sit front and center, with my feet overhanging from the boat, so they led me right up where I relaxed and took in the view. A fabulous experience for the money, too. Quite a memorable experience that we'll enjoy looking back on, and we felt that we left having made friends.
