Windworks 2019 San Juan Islands Sailing Program

For 2018, Windworks stationed 2 boats at Cap Sante Marina in Anacortes, and the response was overwhelming with the fleet 95% booked. Based on popular demand and a lot of member feedback we will create a 2018 San Juan Sailing program that offers a great value on newer sailing boats.  All sailboats have a least (3) staterooms.  Charters available to non-members (Must be US Sailing Bareboat, ASA 106 or equivalent)

Pre-reserve for 2019 by calling our office (206) 784-9386 or use the form on this page.


Cap Sante Marina – Anacortes, WA

Boats will be stationed at Cap Sante Marina which is conveniently located about an hour north of Seattle in Anacortes, which is arguably one of the nicest marinas in Washington state and includes full amenities including Anthony’s Seafood and is also near Safeway, West Marine and has convenient access to the San Juan Islands.

How to Reserve

Windworks will honor booking requests on a “First Come, First Served” basis for both our members and non-members. Please submit your request with your week preferences, and a staff member will contact you for the next steps. A limited number of 3 and 4-day charters aboard Lucy Jane may be available throughout the season. Please contact customer support for more details.

If you have not sailed with us before, please submit a sailing resume by clicking here.

Charters departing from Anacortes operate on a weekly schedule. Our standard charter week is Saturday at 9 AM until Friday at 12 PM. This schedule allows our staff to have adequate time for cleaning and maintenance between reservations, as they will most likely be scheduled “back to back”. Saturday mornings from 9AM-11AM, our staff will conduct a Safety Briefing, and Charter Orientation where you will complete an onboard checkout of the vessel. This is a great opportunity to learn about the San Juan’s popular destinations!

The Fleet

The San Juan Fleet will consist of 2 very capable cruising boats that are especially suited for cruising the San Juan Islands:

Hanse 470e – SCIROCCO

Scirocco is Hanse 470e performance cruiser with 3 staterooms and 2 heads, including an owner’s cabin with a separate head. Each head includes a shower and electric toilets. Sleeps up to 7; ideal for 6. Dual diesel heaters run on shore power and at anchor. Spacious indoor salon with white leather couches, hardwood, skylights and a full galley. Scirocco, is also a sailor’s dream with an epoxy hull, high-aspect three spreader rig, self-tacking jib, electric winches, North 3DL Marathon Upwind Sails, and all rigging run back to the dual helms for smooth short-handed sailing and an elevated level of performance while also being flexible. Scirocco is a very stable, flexible boat that can be sailed leisurely or for performance depending on your mood.
