What you'll do

We will set sail from the Ocean City, Maryland commercial harbor, which is often an overlooked gem for guests that travel to Ocean City, a town primarily known for its beautiful beaches. Part of the beauty of the trip is passing Assateague Island to starboard on the way to the ocean- where feral ponies often intermingle with adventurous sunbathers and incredible birds are on full display! After cruising through the inlet connecting the coastal bays with the Atlantic Ocean, we will raise the sails and begin our ocean sailing experience. Depending on the wind/weather, we may cruise along the coast of OC or head a few miles out and check out land from a distance. Ocean sailing is a uniquely peaceful experience and a sailing catamaran provides an excellent opportunity to enjoy sailing. The boat sails flat, so there is no "heeling" (or leaning) as the wind powers the vessel. And because of the configuration of the deck, guest are free to move about the deck and find their perfect "spot" for relaxing- often in the trampoline forward! If the wind/waves are rough, I will mitigate their impact by sailing a bit downwind or by spending more time in the coastal bay navigating along Assateague Island. If conditions allow we will put up a spinnaker- the big, colorful sail that simply catches the wind and inspires awe in passengers and spectators alike!

Steve

I have recently completed a circumnavigation on my 50' sailing catamaran, Alyosha. I have sailed all of my life (40+ years) and I still get a thrill every time the engines shut down and only the wind powers the boat. My wife (Lisa) and I were able to "live the dream" - taking our kids out of school for a year for part of the journey around the world. We love to share our story: sometimes further inspiring those who are considering such a trip and sometimes just sharing details of the many places we have visited to those interested. Sharing a passion for sailing is easy for me; the incredible sights and sounds that accompany each sailing trip (the beach from a distance, dolphins, other vessels) also provide and opportunity for guests to learn even more about our area.

Where you'll be

We will transit Ocean City's often overlooked, magnificent harbor where various commercial enterprises flourish and travel alongside Assateague Island, an undeveloped natural gem with beautiful coastlines and wildlife to view. And we will see Ocean City from the water, a resort town that swells in size to 250,000 people during the busy summer. But the highlight of the trip will be your encounter with the Atlantic Ocean in all its majesty!

More tips

Some people worry about motion sickness- and this concern is something to be taken seriously. If you are prone to motion sickness, then we recommend taking something about 30-45 minutes prior to the trip. Generally, the boat provides plenty of open air spaces so that seasickness is not an issue.
