Cruisers weekend journey



Enjoy a Weekend Sailboat Adventure

Picture yourself walking down a dock to a sailboat as the skipper. You have the knowledge and confidence to take command of Venere, a 42-foot sailboat for an amazing time on the water. You’ve dreamed about this day and now it’s here!

Spend a day or more on board this beautiful Catalina 42 Mk2 sailing vessel with you at the helm and enjoy the wonders of true freedom. Sail with an ASA 105/106 Certification or with a certified captain on the coastal waters of Southern California. Anchor out for the day or set a course to Santa Catalina Island… It’s your adventure!

Or just stay at the dock and enjoy the Hyatt Regency Spa and Marina Hotel facilities. Or a little of both!

Gone Sailing will make this happen for you!
