Join a Sailing Club

Make Friends and Save Money!Although a sailing club is a great way to save money while doing what you love, you still want to find a program that gives you your money’s worth.Here is an example of membership benefits from one of San Francisco’s sailing programs:* Discounted Charters Rates (non-members add 50%!)
* 1/2 Price Charter Week twice annually
* Can sponsor one family or friend membership at $295
* 25% Discount on Sailing Instruction
* 10% Discount on Charters & Activities.

* Discounts on Caribbean Sailing Vacations
* Free company sailing T-Shirts or Hats
* Club Members may Charter Boats until 5:00 a.m. the Following Day at No Extra Cost
* Free Night Boarding on two-day chartersAs you can see, the membership can pay for itself even if you only go out a few times a month. Even if you only go out a couple times a month, you’ll already be saving money. But again, it will be worth your time to research the different types of memberships so you can be sure to find the best fit for you.If you’re interested in becoming certified, you will want a program that will give you the best discounts on certification and instruction. These can be expensive, but they’re worth the expense if you’re serious about getting certified.If you’ve been sailing a while, you’ll want to look for a membership that offers the best discounts on chartering, whether you’re going out for the day or bare boating. These tend to be less expensive than the beginners’ memberships since they don’t offer training discounts, so if you’re certified and looking for a cost-effective sailing option, you will want to consider a club membership.Beyond the mere financial incentives, the real reward of joining a sailing club is sharing a passion with others who also love sailing. You can join a crew for some serious sailing or just swap stories and share your love of sailing.

Experience the Elegance of Venice Through Private Tours to Venice

Venice is without a doubt, one of the most beautiful cities in the world, as evidenced by the countless literary masterpieces that the city has inspired. It is for this reason that private tours to Venice are so popular, especially for those who want to experience the city’s infectious romantic vibe. The Floating City, Venice is best known for being built on water. In fact, no car can access the city and canals lead to everywhere you want to go. Venice comprises of some 118 islands, interconnected with countless bridges and winding canals.

Private tours to Venice are even more enjoyable with at least a few hours spent on a Gondola ride. These small canoes are ubiquitous in the city and they are definitely the best way to get around, especially if you want a unique view of the city through the waterways. This said, walking tours of the city’s centuries old streets are also very common, especially for those who want to admire Venice’s rich collection of Gothic architecture that dates back as early as the Byzantine and Ottoman periods. Ca’d'Oro the Doge’s Palace, and Palazzo Cavalli-Franchetti are only among the must-see architectural marvels in the city.

Surrounded by water, it is no surprise that Venice is also a huge seafood haven. If you want to try a different side of Italy’s cuisine, Venice is definitely a great place to sample its seafood delights. The city doesn’t run out of fresh supply of fish, shellfish, and other seafood favorites hauled out from nearby lagoons.

Private tours to Venice are also not complete without a visit to the Burano Island, which is one of the most iconic fishing villages in the region, known for its floating houses that paint a rainbow-colored backdrop for your excursion. Another interesting island to spend a tour in is Lido or the Golden Island, which is best known for its private beaches and golden dunes.
