15 knots all afternoon. And Grace on her first sail ever. A very sweet intro to our arcane pastime

Another excellent run to Anacapa. Averaged 7.5 knots under blue skies and 70 degrees on the thermeter.

Introduction
I'm the captain at Sail Channel Islands  I offer captained charters on our luxury yacht and teach sailing.

Though, I've been sailing for 50 years, this is the first time in my life that I've actually made a living doing it. My favorite job is my only pastime - sailing and my favorite spot to do that is right in my backyard - the Channel Islands of southern California.

I teach sailing, too -- privately -- in my own little sailing school, but my best week is one that finds me in a sheltered cove at Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa or San Miguel Island.

If you want to learn more about the Channel Islands, check out my cruising guide and my Capt. Dan's Channel Islands Sailing Blog.
