|SailinJay||I've been out on the Bay when it's been over 100 with a steady 15-knot wind all day. May be the exception, but this past summer my wife and I sailed on many a warm day with plenty of wind. I am retired, so I am able to take advantage of warm breezy days during the week.|

You might want to find out how flexible scheduling your time on the boat is. The Chesapeake Bay in July and August can be hotter than hell and no wind. It would not be very fun if it's your turn on the boat and it's 95 and no wind

|SailinJay||FWIW, the previous thread was called Sailtime vs Pinnacle vs Windpath, last discussed on 12-10-06 (page 14).|

|mcdales||We have a Beneteau 461, 3cabin 3 head, in the BVI. We own it outright. We are looking for a few competant sailors to join our program. We would like them to committ to 2-6 weeks per year for 3 years, with flexible scheduling. This allows for low sailing costs. An introductory sail is offered prior to committment. The yacht is well maintained by a manager in Nanny Cay and has many upgrades. contact email@example.com if interested|

Thanks Melrna - that's what I was looking for in this thread.
Just a quick update...I have checked with Jon Jones of WindPath of Annapolis on some clarifications. Basically, for a quarter the cost of owning the boat you get to sail on a reservation-based basis. All in all, not a bad deal really. Now, if I could just find the $10k....Anyone need a huge amount of landscape design/build???

I belong to Sailtime. I can tell you I am going to sign up again next session. For me it is well worth the money. I sail on a brand new Hunter 33 in the NY/NJ area. My fees along wouldn't touch what it would cost me in slip fees if I owned my own boat. The amount of times that I want to sail are usually available. I don't have to worry about maintenance, gas or other usual boat ownership problems. The scheduler is nice and easy to work to reserve your time on the boat. The times are broken up into two periods for each day. You can read about the days on their website. The good thing is if the boat isn't being used within 24 hours than you can reserve the boat and it doesnt count against your allocated periods.

|Jotun||There was another thread more recently that answered your questions, although I couldn't find it either....|

The only one I found is this one:
But it really does not anser Jon's questions or mine. It will be nice to hear what other says about this type of program with their "actual" experiecne. Thanks.
