Open Sail with Fernando

September 16 • 11:00 am-1:00 pm

For anyone who is looking to experience a sail on one of our Azorean whaleboats for the first time, you can do so free of charge! An individual can row or sail up to a total of two times before being required to become a member and pay the $30 annual boat dues.  It only costs $60 ($30 membership plus $30 boat fee) to use our Azorean whaleboats all season. Incredible!

Sign up for an open sail at SignUpGenius


Open sail slots are added weekly and are filled on a first come, first serve basis. (If there are particular days/times that work better for you, please let us know and we will try our best to accommodate open row time slots that work best for those who are interested.)

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early for your open row. Boats are expected to leave the dock at the scheduled time to maximize our time on the water! Bring a bottle of water, hat/sunglasses/sunscreen, and a pair of gloves (rowing/cycling/paddling etc.).


All individuals must sign a boating waiver before getting on our boats. New this year, you can sign the waiver ONLINE! Avoid paperwork and save time at the dock by filling out the waiver here. All coxes will verify this information before to taking any passengers out on the boats.


If you are not able to make it to a row or sail that you have signed up for, please provide at least 24 hours notice so that the slot can be filled by someone else.

Depending upon weather conditions and the number of people signed up for a row or sail, the steerer will determine whether or not it must be canceled (typically by 5pm the evening before the row or sail).
