Cruisers weekend journey



Enjoy a Weekend Sailboat Adventure

Imagine yourself walking down a dock to a sailboat as the skipper. You have the knowledge and experience to take command of Venere, a 42-foot sailboat for an amazing time on the water. 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. Anchor this vessel for the day, or set course to Santa Catalina Island for a sailing adventure! Sail with an ASA 105/106 Certification or with a certified captain on the coastal waters of Southern California.
