With summer coming upon all of us there are a lot of things to consider down here in Southwest Florida. I’m still sailing a lot and locals and visitors alike are enjoying the warm days and evenings. The winds are starting to calm down a little and my summer schedule is starting to get screwy as it usually does each year.
First of all, please keep an eye on the web site. I will be posting a lot of information up there during the summer months that will have to do with everything with the business. Prices, packages, lay up time for maintenance and safety checks. So don’t miss a thing. You will want to stay informed and be ready to book your excursions early to ensure you place on the vessel
The Star of Orion is going to be a wonderful addition to Magic Wind Adventure Sailing. She sails very nice. Fast and comfy is are the words to use. She carries plenty of sail, has shade and seating for everyone. Her deck space is great for working on those tans. She has two state rooms and will be taking passengers to some very special anchorages. Plenty of water for hot showers and easy access to the water with her open transom. She even has an outside shower to get rid of that salt as soon as you come out from snorkeling.
NOTICE: Star of Orion is scheduled for a new bottom job and a general “out of water” check up mid June until the end of July. This is for your safety and the safety of the vessel. Keep an eye on the site for future updates on the up and coming sailing season.
Also be sure and check out the Conch Club page and see if your photo is up there. I have some that the names were lost in space, so if you see your photo and there is a question mark instead of a name, drop me a line and I’ll repost it with your name. Good to have you in the club.
I did drop my good friend Brad and his wife Stacie out in the dingy to get some shots of Star of Orion under sail. Here is your first look at her… CLICK HERE.

Hey, you know what, it’s a great day and I think I’ll go out and go sailing. So I’m getting out of the office and head down the dock and untie some lines. I’ll be back.
