Therapy Adventure Cruise

The Concept

Island Chill Yacht Charters is proud to introduce our 'Therapy Adventure Cruise' opportunity in 2019! 

Register now (singly, couple or as a group; weekend or weekday) for a day when the winds are firm, and you and our crew are fired up to sail Therapy to her best potential. No experience necessary, although we will balance novice sailors with experienced guests (and the seasoned Island Chill Crew, of course).

We'll all scan the NOAA Marine Weather Service to identify a day of perfect conditions to contact you by email or Text Message to see who is available for a real marine adventure.

The Experience

Everyone will have the opportunity to be Helmsman and Crew, or even just sit back and enjoy the voyage.

You'll get to handle a large, powerful vessel that few on the Chesapeake actually get to experience. At 46-ft from bowsprit to stern, over 12-tons displacement and over 770 sq-ft of sail area, Therapy is a stable performance cruiser - even in strong winds. Therapy is an exhilarating, but safe adventure.

We'll sail out of the South River, and either go northwards past Thomas Point, Annapolis, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge, past Sandy Point and on towards Baltimore. We'd probably anchor for lunch on the Magothy or Severn River. Or we may head southwards past the Bloody Point Light, and either sail past Poplar Island or head into the Eastern Bay towards St Michaels. The southern route would probably mean we'd anchor for lunch in the Rhode River. To be honest, we'll probably decide collectively our routes and destination depending on the winds once we leave port.

Adventure at it's Best!

The Outcome

You will spend the day with like-minded adventurers and come ashore exhilarated and invigorated - as well as being a more experienced and seasoned sailor.
