O que você fará

Welcome to this virtual onboard experience!

We will introduce ourselves and our passions, check out the ever-changing views of life afloat at anchor somewhere in San Francisco Bay, tour the boat (virtually) and have an extensive Q and A about what it’s like to live, work, cruise and raise a family aboard a floating home at sea! We talk sustainability and minimalism in practice afloat too.

If you’ve ever watched the YouTube sailing channels like La Vagabond or Delos and wondered if that could be the life for you, I can help you think about where and how to begin. I have been doing it over 20 years and my kids are also older now than most popular sailing vloggers, so I can attest to the pros and cons of raising a family at sea off grid! While not always smooth sailing, it is by far a better life in so many ways than what’s normal on land and I can truly say this life afloat is worth all the challenges it brings and more!

Sit down with a beverage of your choice at home, and be prepared for some sea stories! Bring your questions, and I’ll give you honest answers, salted and peppered with all that a life at sea entails.

You can check out my Instagram feed @finedayforsailing and what guests have said about my In-person sailing experiences in San Francisco Bay, and hopefully when the time is right I can take you for an actual sail in person some day soon!
Other things to note
If you’d like to set your zoom background to a picture of the Golden Gate Bridge we will all appear to be together! (Not required, just fun). Come with your questions and I will be sure to answer them and take you virtual voyaging on San Francisco Bay! Best if viewed on a larger screen if possible.

Sailing since I was 4 years old, and a licensed captain for about 20 years, I’ve raised 3 children aboard (now 16, 14 and 5) and cruised extensively along the California and Mexico coast as well as sailed professionally all over the world. I’ve hosted onboard experiences with Airbnb since the beginning and my logbooks are full of comments from people like you! I wish I could take you on board for a sail but in today’s reality we are focusing on what we CAN do, so welcome aboard and enjoy the (virtual) ride! We live in a very tiny footprint with a ecological perspective that most people have never experienced and if you’ve ever wanted to live a life closer to nature and less tied to the grid/grind, now is a great time to reflect and make
new choices. Enjoy our views at anchor, powered by solar and wind, and ask me about life afloat!

It was really interesting to learn about life on boat in SF. The conversation was lively and I could ask a lot of questions. Heather gave a lot of useful tips and info about the sailing schools and trainers in California. She is open and happy person. Will definitely sail with her in reality after the pandemic situation :)

Interesting & unique experience! Heather was a very warm and open host. I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with her about her adventures and living-on-a-boat lifestyle. She even treated me to a kayak ride to see the sunset in the SF Bay. I am so impressed with her small ecological footprint!!

Highly recommended! Heather is a professional who's been sailing for her whole life. She introduced me interesting sea lives and how she's living and working with her boat. She's willing to answer all my questions.

See gorgeous views of San Francisco Bay while Heather explains life on a sailboat, the sailing community and sustainable living. We took a virtual ride on a rowboat that Heather made herself and I felt like I was in the boat with her right on the water. Friendly and personable experience!

A wonderful and intimate trip with Captain Heather explaining her life and work living onboard her sailboat. Chartering visitors in the Bay Area, working and leading other boats, a 7 month cruise and raising 3 great children on board so we could understand her passion.

If you're considering this experience, don't hesitate! Sign-up. It's a worthwhile, interesing and most of all inspiring view of a unique lifestyle in one of the most beautiful settings in the world. Full disclosure, I decided to go on Heather's tour because I know her mother. She lives next door! When Heather sailed for 7 months, her mother joined her a few different times so I really heard a lot about the experiences of sailing, cooking, school projects while under sail, and going ashore. I'd heard so much about Heather, I'd met her amazing children that I thought it'd be fun to do this virtual experience and actually "see" what it's like on board. Even with all I knew ahead of time, I was absolutely surprised, wowed, and inspired by the family life aboard. In these days of excess consumerism, it absolutely was beautiful to learn about their minimalist lifestyle. Also, I got a really good sense of the marine community both here in Marin and in general, the myriad careers and jobs people do, about other types of sailboats, and the sustainability of their lifestyle.
