Join us for our Fourth Schooner Zodiac Book Club sailing!

Come aboard our third “Books A’Sail” trip! We’re honored to have Fairhaven’s own Village Books as our official sponsor, with Owners Paul Hanson and Kelly Evert guiding our literary journey.

We are excited to announce that our 2019 Literary Adventure will be joined by author Nancy Pearl. Nancy is a best-selling author, librarian, and literary critic, but first and foremost, she is a reader and has spent her life promoting reading as one of the most beneficial and joyful experiences anyone can have.

We are very excited to announce the 2019  books we’ll be discussing during the cruise.
We will be very honored to explore George and Lizzie by Nancy Pearl with the author herself. Swashbuckling favorite Master and Commander by Patrick O’Brian and nautical adventure Passage to Juneau by Jonathan Raban will also be up for review.

  • 3-days sailing and exploring the San Juan Islands
  • Navigational and Sail training aboard a classic tall ship
  • Delicious and hearty meals and snacks served from the ship’s galley
  • Visit amazing islands and explore by hiking or kayaking
  • Plenty of wildlife sightings including bald eagles, porpoises, seals and whales

Part of the adventure of sailing is that wind and tide may alter your course. For this reason the Zodiac may deviate from it’s intended route at the captain’s discretion. Bearing this in mind, the captain and crew will always endeavor to give passengers the most incredible experience possible. Already booked and wondering what to pack? See our handy packing list.

“What an adventure! This is a hands-on experience! Duty rotations include chart room, helm, bow watch and messenger. And everyone helps to raise the sails. The captain and all-volunteer crew are fun and ever-watchful over their charges. No surprise here…good food and plenty of it for very hungry people….”
