Day Sailing & Courses Aboard Yacht Guinevere

The Puerto Galera Yacht Club is excited to announce the arrival of GUINEVERE II - a Golden Gate/Farallon 30-foot sailing yacht. A tried and tested true blue-water sailing boat, the club is introducing her to its day-sailing and sailing course program, in addition to the current dinghy sailing course program.

The following video shows S/Y Guinevere II sailing around Puerto Galera in October, 2012, crewed by our sailing school graduates. She is sturdy, easy to handle and faster than you might think, bearing in mind her size.
