When you're sitting at your desk on a cold winter's day do you ever imagine your-self at the helm of a luxury sailing sloop, the wind in your hair and your loved one(s) at your side? Can you see yourself silently slicing through the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico as the sun melts majestically into the horizon? Yes? Well you're not alone in having this dream and I'm happy to tell you that it can easily become a reality with one call to Serenidad Sailing Charters... Capt Richard and Dina Hamm's gorgeous 2000 41' Beneteau sailboat is available either for private charter, for up to six people, or at low per person rates and the emphasis is on making an experience which is personalized and special just for you. It's a beautiful, well designed, spacious, stable and meticulously maintained vessel with a large, shaded cockpit area complete with comfortable cushions, a roomy forward deck, and an attractively appointed inside cabin with washroom. With all of that at your disposal, there's masses of room for you to move around, or just lie back and completely relax. If you prefer to take a more active role, you're welcome to take a turn at the wheel. Capt Richard is a fully certifi ed sailing instructor with 20 years sailing experience and he's always happy to, quite literally, show you the ropes and teach you to trim a sail. (He also offers group and private sailing lessons at his "Sail Marco" school - Daytime scheduled cruises are 3 hours long and Dina, the captain's mate, is always there to provide you with everything to make your trip a perfect one. She'll take photos and e-mail them to you later, provide warm fl eecy blankets to snuggle up in on colder days, fl uffy beach towels to stretch out on in the sun and complimentary ice cold soft drinks. She also offers a deli-cious cheese plate on the 2½ hour sunset cruises and if you'd like to bring any other food or beverage on any of the trips, or would like Dina to organize catering of any kind, that's just fi ne. Capt Richard and Dina are very knowledgeable about Marco Island and its wildlife (ospreys, dolphin and sea turtles are fre-quent sightings) and they'll be happy to share their knowledge with you or, if you prefer, they'll just leave you to enjoy the absolute tranquility of sailing. A romantic sunset or full moon trip is the per-fect backdrop for a marriage proposal or special anniversary celebration. In fact sailing with Serenidad is a great way to celebrate any occa-sion, or no occasion at all except the company of your family and friends. So why not make your dreams come true to-day and call Serenidad at 239-272-0939 or visit their website at Oh, and don't forget to use the coupon on the coupon page!
