If you are thinking one night, then an overnight out of seattle is probably best. Windworks is a dufour sails outlet, but has other brands availible to charter. Seattle sailing is the J-Boat dealer in town, but like Windworks, hs other brands availible.
Places to go, if you want somewhat rough, Blake island, get there by 3-4 pm on a Fri to sun, and there is a native Salmon dinner done by the Duwamish tribe in a long house, with dancing, ie native indian style after. There are some other places that are real easy from here to that go to other cites, ie Eagle harbor on Bainbridge, Bremerton and see the warships, and tour some, come north to edmonds where David and I are at, lots of stuff walking distance from here too.
For a single overnight, the San Juan island places IMHO are too far to drive. The 2 70 footers on the water front of seattle, come with a captain, not positive, but for an overnight, that might be a blast, especially if you can get Neptunes Carr, a Santa Cruz 70 that is decked out for racing fast too. Reports of mid 20knots down wind are not uncommon from crew members on good days!
