Take a 4 day trip to the San Juan Islands using the longer days and regional tidal currents. We sail with about ten boats and can accommodate about fifty people. Most members come back year after year! No previous experience is required to join us on this journey – it’s an opportunity for the experienced members to share their skills with the less experienced, and an opportunity for everyone to see that cruising the Northwest is actually quite within the capability of any Windworks member, and applying your lessons can take you further than you may have imagined.
Spring Tides is a member-driven club event, where members and owners, skipper the Windworks Fleet to the San Juan Islands and back – rain, shine or gale.
Spring Tides is organized into groups of 4 to 7 or more people per boat, with a skipper, first mate, and crew. Skipper and first mate positions are normally reserved for more experienced club members with BBC certifications, and crew can be any experience level.
This year there are four price levels, with the price depending on the charter rate of the boat, and other factors.
