The Windjammers Cruising Committee arranges about six cruises that range from one to several days in length. These cruises will be organized, planned and led by a cruise coordinator. You can join or leave a cruise at any time, meet us at ports along the cruise or hop on a cruising boat. Contact a Cruise Coordinator for cruise details.

We encourage members to organize and plan their own cruises. If you wish to have other boats join you, the Cruise Committee will help by informing members of your cruise details and itinerary.

Future Plans:

  • Create marina and anchorage reports
  • Arrange cruising educational seminars
  • Promote floatillas

Cruise Overview

This is the cruise that started the cruise
committee! Originally named the 7-day
anywhere the wind blows cruise, it has
been renamed for the man who inspired this committee.

The cruise will favor ports with restaurants and shops to accommodate those who wish to go inland.

  • Since this is a multi-port cruise, it will be possible to join or leave the flotilla at any time.
