Ben & Deb
Ben first fell in love with sailing as a boy, visiting the Atlantic Coast of Florida, where his grandfather had 19ft daysailer. Years later, following a summer spent as crew on a competitive and successful racing yacht on Lake Michigan, the deal was sealed. He was hooked and has spent a good part of his adult life trying to find his way onto boats. As owner/captain of Sail Bainbridge and the beautiful classic sailing yacht, TRUE, there is little he loves more than being on the water and sharing the experience with others. Ben’s has nearly 5,000 miles offshore sailing experience including passages up the West Coast of the US from San Diego to Seattle, the North Sea from Sweden to Scotland, and the North Atlantic from Key West to Bermuda. He is a United States Coast Guard Licensed Captain (OUPV). He's also a dad & professional musician.
Lifejackets & Safety Gear Per USCG requirements and our own detail safety planning, we carry all necessary safety equipment.
We'll sail out of Eagle Harbor, Bainbridge Island - with views of Seattle, Blakely Rock, surrounding islands, mountains and volcanos. We'll also sail past the maintenance yard for the Washington State Ferries, historical vessels and even a Superfund site. Our sailing grounds are truly some of the best in the world. We never tire of these magnificent surroundings.
If you have any questions you can contact Captain Ben directly at 206-788-6512 or info@SailBainbridge.com. Our sails operate on a fairly tight schedule, so plan on being a few minutes early, so we can maximize your time on the water. Take care walking on the docks.
