Our last trip to Catalina was epic.
We would like to share part of the highlights with you.
Our Catalina trips are a great way to get some "blue water" experience.
Also a great intro to sailing the Caribbean, Mediterranean or Southern Pacific Islands.
Work on your SLC license, which you'll need if sailing in Europe.
So we've got one more trip to Catalina
