Red Dress, a vintage J-35 race boat, is sweet handling, fast and roomy. Let her owner, Cap'n Bill, take you and up to five of your friends and/or family on a sailing adventure around San Francisco or out the Gate along the magnificent Marin headlands. Red Dress is a veteran of two SF-Hawaii round trips and extensive coastal cruising. She's just come out of the boatyard with sparkling new paint, refurbished mast and rigging and is tugging at the dock lines. Her new Pineapple jib makes her exceptionally close winded.
Your adventure is limited only by your imagination and my concern for your safety. Bring your kayaks or bikes for a drop off and pickup at Angel Island or Tiburon. Do a culinary tour with lunch on the SF waterfront and dinner in Sausalito and in between do an exhilarating circuit of the Bay on the boisterous afternoon breeze.
Learn to sail a serious ocean going vessel and acquire all the basic cruising skills including crew overboard recovery, reefing, anchoring, and heaving-to. Red Dress's responsiveness and ease of handling makes her an ideal platform for beginners while her speed and windward performance make an exciting ride for the experienced sailor. Welcome aboard.
