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 in Downtown Mystic.
Tale Spinner is a classic 17' sturdy and safe day sailor berthed in West Mystic. She is ideally suited for exploring the nooks and coves of the Mystic River in Mystic, Connecticut.
Welcome aboard! Give me a buzz or contact me by email and we'll choose a boat, time and date for a sail. There is a minimum of four persons for a sail aboard Tall Tales and a maximum of from 6 to 10 depending on the group. I'll take up to four aboard Tale Spinner.
Sails aboard Tall Tales are from 2-1/2 to 3 hours or so depending on 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). Sails aboard Tale Spinner are $25 per person and are about an hour to an hour and and a half . 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.
