Sept 7th - 10th | NNYC Organized Sailing Trip to the Apostle Islands
When: Thursday, September 7th to Sunday, September 10th
Don Reid firstname.lastname@example.org and Kevin Jacobe email@example.com are organizing a three day sailing adventure to The Apostle Islands in Bayfield, WI. The group will carpool up Thursday September 7th, and return to Neenah Sunday evening. Two of the nights will be at an anchorage off one of the islands. Each boat of four to six will make their own meal those evenings.
All sailboats will have skippers experienced in larger sailboats, the Apostle waters and a resume approved by Superior Charter. The crews will be of mixed experience. We currently have two boats filled and have added a third.
The Apostle Islands are one of our nations premier fresh water sailing destinations and its only five and half hours away. You can expect to sail 25 to 50 miles each day with a goal of reaching the anchorage around 3:00 pm, leaving time to swim or to row ashore and hike the island.
The anticipated cost is around $500 TO $550 per person. The sailboats will cost $440 per person. The remainder will be your travel costs and provisions.
A deposit of $200 is needed at sign-up with the remainder needed in mid-August.
