It has been one heck of a month for me and Magic Wind Adventure Sailing…
Since the last time I posted a note up here, I have had Brother Dan, singer/songwritter from Reno with me for almost three weeks in March. Then after he headed out, Brad, Stacie, Rianna and Mallory came in for a very short visit. We had way too much fun in the four days they were here in Fort Myers Beach.
It seems that you just don’t get around to the very, very cool things in your own backyard until guests show up. That’s just the way it is, but it was nice to visit some places that we haven’t been to for a while. So we kicked around town and sailed a lot.
Well this is the time that I need to let the cat out of the bag.
Magic Wind is being sold and replaced with Star of Orion.
Star of Orion is a Hunter 380, 1999, 38 foot coastal cruiser. She has two staterooms, onboard restroom and shower, full galley and a vanity in the v-berth. She has seating in the cockpit for eight and sleeps six comfortably with great accommodations for four.
With a full queen berth aft and a full size v-berth, four people can cruise the Florida Coast in comfort and style. The horseshoe shaped dinette sits to the starboard side as the seven foot couch sits to port, making a generous living area below decks.
She hot and cold pressurized water and a capacity of seventy gallons of fresh water onboard
Star of Orion carries thirty-five gallons of diesel fuel which gives her about two hundred and thirty five miles of cruising range under power.
I am excited about this change of vessel and I know you will be too. We all loved Magic Wind and her memory will live on in the hearts of everyone that has sailed with her. She will never be forgotten and will be a part of us forever.
Star of Orion will be a comfortable ride for all that venture out on the Gulf of Mexico with us. We are going to be setting up some special packages for you in the near future, so go to: http://www.SailMagicWind.com and check back often to see what’s new.
We will be offering two, three and five day charters as well as a “Boat & Breakfast” package. That’s right, book an evening cruise and have the option of having dinner out and then spending a night on Star of Orion and being treated to one of Capt. Paul’s infamous boat breakfasts. Hardy, but light to keep you going through the day.
Nothing better that a night on the boat and the fresh feeling you’ll enjoy when you start your day. In fact book the next day or half day cruise and enjoy the day at sea.
So big changes. We know have Danny and Cricket with us and they will keep an eye on Maggie, (the sea dog), while my wife Pat and I head over to the Pacific to do some vacationing. We will be in Hawaii for a couple weeks on a cruise ship and then sail from Hawaii to Vancover, Canada for a repositioning of the Spirit. Should be a great time.
I’ll be back in town May 17 ready for a sail or three. Go ahead and call and I can still take your reservations over the phone. Then we will sail in, what I consider, one of the best sailing months of the year… May.
I’ll be posting soon about all the work that Star of Orion has and is going to have done within the next few months. She will shine for you.
Thanks again for sailing with, Magic Wind Adventure Sailing.
