I will be playing Gilligan on the Sailing Vessel Polaris throughout the summer.
I'm just a dinghy sailor you know. You wouldn't want me to be in charge of a
gaff rigged sloop.
The Spaulding Wooden Boat Center in Sausalito plans to offer free sailing
outings this summer on the Polaris, a refurbished 40-foot sloop built in 1906.
The sailing trips will begin June 24, the day of the Master Mariners Benevolent
Association's annual wooden boat show at the Corinthian Yacht Club in Tiburon.
Trips will then be offered every other Saturday from July 7 until October,
said Mark Welther, the center's executive director.
Welther said the trips are intended to introduce residents to the boat center,
a nonprofit created to restore classic boats and educate the public about
traditional wooden boat building.
The Polaris can accommodate the crew and six passengers, so reservations are
encouraged. Sailing time will be 1 p.m., weather permitting.
For more information, call 332-3179.
