ITINERARY

We will join up in Berkeley, then set sail and spend a night or two in San Francisco Bay where we are able to take in the local culture, with stunning views of the famous bridge

Then we’ll begin our nonstop sail for two and a half days towards the Channel Islands. Here, we’ll explore one or two islands (Santa Cruz Island being our favorite so far)

Then head for Santa Barbara for the last night in the Harbor, before disembarking the next day.
