Stu Reininger holds a 100-ton USCG Masters License and has been a professional sailor, writer and author for, well, longer than he wants to admit. 

Tall Tales is a 35' heavy displacement ocean cruising cutter and is Stu's home when he is aboard. She is berthed at Capt. Scott's Lobster Dock in New London CT.

Welcome aboard!  Give me a buzz or contact me by email and we'll choose a  time and date for a sail. There is a minimum of two persons for a sail aboard Tall Tales and a maximum of six


Sails aboard Tall Tales are from 1hour lunch cruises or 2 1/2 - 3 hours or so depending on type of sail (morning, afternoon, evening, sunset.) tides, bridge openings and whatever else affects sailboats (yes, we  have a very efficient diesel engine). The price is $40/person (talk to me about kids) for 3 hour and $20 for lunchtime.. 


Food, drinks, beer and wine are welcome. Serious booze and smoking are not. I discourage radios, boomboxes etc.


Singing, instrument playing are welcome (pianists inquire).

Cancellation is simple--Let me know. Weather isn't nice? We go another time. Our motto is, "if it aint' fun don't do it."

Interested in learning how to sail? Talk to me. I love teaching this stuff.
