Sailing across the San Juan Islands is an exciting way to be closer to nature. It provides an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and lets you recharge and “disconnect” for a while. However, you can’t just go on a sailing adventure without preparing yourself for the experience.
To ensure a fun and hassle-free trip, there are factors to keep in mind when getting yourself ready, especially if you’re a first-timer.

While using any stepladders and narrow corridors, simply make use of all available handrails.
