MONTEREY BAY SAILING TRIPS
Charters and Sailing School
The Most Ecological Way to see Monterey Bay Since 1994 - Experience the Beauty of the Monterey Bay Sanctuary, its Nature and the Historic Coast line under Sail.
Sailing charters are aboard a fast, racer/cruiser custom 32' Capo sloop named "Carrera" (meaning "race" or "career" in Spanish) designed by Carl Schumacher, N. A. and built by the famous custom boat builder Westerly Marine in Southern California. In her first year she has won the Mini Ocean Racing Conference title. With her current skipper, Gene Maly at the helm she won the overall Monterey PHRF championship in 1989.
Captain Gene Maly is originally from Prague, Czech Republic. In spite of originating from a landlocked country, he has been ocean sailing for over 30 years in Monterey and many parts of the world and logged over 80,000 nautical miles. He has sailed throughout the Carribean, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, South Pacific and Hawaii whether cruising or racing.
Carrera Sailing is concerned with passenger safety. That is why Carrera is powered by a diesel engine (as opposed to our competitors who have possibly explosive gasoline engines) and exceeds US Coast Guard requirements for six passenger vessel and is equipped with radar, Emergency Positioning Beacon (406 GPS-EPIRB), two Global Satellite Positioning systems, plenty of Type I commercial life vests, commercial grade Lifesling and VHF radio. No other charter sailboat in Monterey is as modern and well equipped!
"Carrera" is the newest and largest 6 passenger charter sailboat in Monterey and offers:
- Monterey Bay Sanctuary Sailing Nature Excursions
- Romantic Sunset Cruises
- Scattering of Ashes
- Specialty Cruises (Team Building, Corporate Events, Birthday Celebration etc.)
- US Sailing Accredited and also Non-Accredited Sailing Instruction

MAY - SEPTEMBER
A Marine Conservation and Science Under Sail Program whose mission is to inspire conservation of our oceans through research and education by creating opportunities for individuals to learn about the beauty of our oceans and the threats that they are currently facing. In the past six years over 18,000 individuals have learned more about our oceans while sailing with us aboard the Derek M. Baylis, our purpose designed and built 65-foot sailing research vessel. The non-profit efforts to inspire individuals to take direct action to reduce ocean pollution and increase their support of healthy fisheries is a unique step in the conservation movement. Only through improved understanding of ocean denizens and systems by the masses will the health of our oceans be preserved.
Sealife Conservation also makes the Derek M. Baylis available for charter for research or social functions. If your activity would benefit from the utilization of a virtually silent, low-impact, eco-friendly approach to saving the oceans, please Contact Dave .
