This cruise covers more than 300 miles while exploring the islands of Anacapa, Santa Cruz and Santa Rosa. This is an active cruise and days will be filled with sailing to new islands and anchorages plus hiking and exploring ashore. The rugged beauty and windy coastline of the islands make for challenging but spectacular cruising. Crew members will participate in all aspects of boat handling including steering, navigation, sail handling, watch keeping, anchoring and clean up. Except for the first evening each night will be spent at anchor. Everyone is assigned a bunk and the course fee includes permits and all meals.
