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 are two hours or so (morning, afternoon, evening, sunset) depending on tides, bridge openings and whatever else affects sailboats (yes, we have a very efficient diesel engine).
The price is $50/person for 3 or more; the boat is reserved for your party only.
For 2 persons, the price is $50/person; there will be others aboard up to our maximum of six. If you wish the boat for yourselves (other than myself and my crew), The price is $60/person--Let me know. Food, drinks, beer and wine are welcome. Serious booze and smoking are not. I discourage radios, boomboxes etc. Sure, bring your pet; we love 'em (equestrians inquire).
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 ain't fun don't do it." Don't worry about losing your deposit. We don't accept deposits. Pay after the sail.
Interested in learning how to sail? Talk to me. I love teaching this stuff.
