Captain Ed's Sailing



Welcome to Captain Ed's Sailing, yah I know it is awfully cold to be thinking of boating. I'm with you on that since I planned on being someplace warmer than Salisbury Beach this winter. Making the best of the situation it will give me time to put some much needed work into the Bella Donna. It will also give me time to think of the best ways to improve Captain Ed's Sailing. You can help improve Captain Ed's Sailing by forwarding my newsletter to friends. You can like Captain Ed's Sailing on Facebook, and you can take a survey. I am trying to keep the survey fun it is on a trial basis right now to see if it works at all. Take it whether you plan to sail with me or not. It is a work in progress so be patient.

 Thanks for your support by reading captain Ed's Sailing newsletter each week.

 Have a great holiday season.

Here it is another Christmas season, another summer gone by, and spring is just around the corner. 

 Black Friday is over, I have not turned on the tube to find out how the stores made out, I guess it is a good sign of the economy, but I am more interested in our local economy. I stay out of the box stores and if I am going to buy anything I shop local, it is the best way to help my own community.

  I lucked out the other day I needed a pair of shoes so I went to Hyman's Penny Worth in Newburyport. I only wear a size 7 so it is very hard for me to find good mens shoes, and I wanted either Merrill's or Keens. None fit so the little Al Bundy that is waiting on me, leaves for a minute and comes back with a pair of shoes that fit perfect. He found them in the kids section at half the price of the mens. Now I need boots.

Ah I digress, all around the Newburyport, Salisbury area are great stores to buy crafts, clothes, and even gift certificates for car repair, which by the way is much cheaper locally than at the dealers, and we have great mechanics in the area. 

 Now that I think of it, Captain Ed's Sailing is a local business, I spend all of my profit locally and I sell gift certificates.  There are coupons for my gift certificates down below, check them out and see if they meet your needs, if they don't, give me a call and I will make you up a certificate that does.

This coupon will save you $100 of  the regular price of a Hands On Sailing Adventure. As I have said many times before, the Family hands On Sailing Adventure is  my favorite way of spending time on the Bella Donna, as you and your family learn first hand how to sail a boat.
Bring yourself some drinks and snacks and under my direction you will be operating a sailboat in no time. The trip is just about 5 hours long, during which time you might expect to see Seals, Sunfish, possibly a Whale, or a Dolphin. 
The holiday price for the Hands On Family Sailing Adventure is $350
Offer Expires: January 1 2015

I have repeat customers who rather come out sailing throughout the summer with me than have the expense of owning their own boat, We go out during weekdays or weekends if I don't have a scheduled class already full. During this class we don't learn much, we just sail. This would be a great  for someone who would like to try sailing to see if they like it, or for someone who knows how to sail who would like to sail and not own a boat. The regular price for this class is $150 and the Holiday price will be $125, buy more than one if you like.
Offer Expires: January 1 2015
Captain Ed's Sailing has been doing charters out of Newburyport  Massachusetts since 2005. Well over 200 people have gone through either a Basic Sailing , a navigation class, or a family hands on sailing charter. We offer hands on sailing instruction in a very relaxed easy to understand manner.
