You’ve Arrived Here as You’ve Been Invited to a Summer Sail

WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?
As you likely know, I love to sail. Even better than sailing is getting other people out that love it too, or introducing it to those that have never tried it and really want to. The smile on peoples faces and watching them relax over a few hours is priceless.  Are you going to be one of them?

SO WHAT’S THE DEAL?
Our boat is a 34 foot Hunter, that is safe, has lots of room (sleeps 4-6) and YES, it has a head (sailor speak for a bathroom). You don’t need to know a thing about sailing, but can learn if you’d like and pretty much take over the helm if you have some experience.

SO WHAT’S AGENDA
We have two different sailing agendas. Wednesdays are half and Fridays full days.

A typical Wednesday would be….

Meet at the Whitby Marina docks at noon (bring a sub or sandwich if you like –Subway is about a minute west of the marina at 617 Victoria St W, Whitby, ON

Sail around the area for a few hours.
5:00 pm  Arrive back at the dock and drive back to the city (or from whence you came)

A typical Friday would be….

9:30 am Meet at Port Whitby Marina docks
10-12:30 Sail to a beautiful patio restaurant right on the water in Frenchman’s Bay
12:30 -2:00 Hang for an amazing lunch and beverages at the Port
2:30-5:30 sail back to Whitby and drive back to the city (or from whence you came)

SO HOW DO I BOOK A SPOT?
We can take up to 5 guests, so if you have a friend, a spouse, co-worker or other you’d like to bring along, feel free to add them as well. If you are solo or a couple, just pick a date.  If you see someone you know, then jump on with them.  THIS IS FIRST COME FIRST SERVED. We have more people that want to sail than we have days so please don’t wait for a second invitation, there will not be one.  We are continuing with the same booking system this year. I am asking you to pick your day and book your spot online, then drop me an e-mail as to what you chose. This way you can see the dates that are open and  pick one that isn’t already booked.

SO WHERE IS THIS BOAT?
The boat is kept at Port-Whitby Marina and the address is 301 Watson Street, Whitby, ON.

To get there…

1.  Take 407 to Hwy #412 south, then to the end at the #401 eastbound….

2.   Take the 401 East, exit at Brock Street – Whitby (NOT BROCK ROAD, PICKERING). Turn south/left to Victoria Street. Turn right on Victoria Street and take the second left (Watson Street). You will be heading south to the marina entrance on the south (right) side of Watson Street.

The boat is called UNDECIDED and I am on Pier 7 slip 40 but there is a locked gate so you’ll probably need to call me to open it. My cell number is 416-409-2117. Dress as you like (but be casual) and avoid nice or hard soled shoes and remember it is ALWAYS cooler on the water so an extralayer (or two) helps (I’m usually barefoot and shorts…after May anyway 🙂

Please note that trips are weather dependent. We have no control over that, so may have to cancel at the last minute to ensure everyone’s safety.  That said, we have only cancelled a couple of times in recent years. If you have any questions, just call Dave at 905-886-9203 or email at dave@mainstayinsurance.ca
