Good Anchorage

Ahoy, Good Anchorage web-sailors.

Capt. Dan Ryder is the owner of Sail Channel Islands
Capt. Dan

I’m Capt. Dan Ryder. I’m a  licensed U.S. Coast Guard Captain with more than 40 years of sailing experience. I’ve sailed many of the world’s greatest cruising grounds, but if I had to choose one spot to spend the rest of my sailing days, it would be right here in the Channel Islands of California.

We sail every month of the year and never have to venture forth in rotten weather to keep up that record. Of course, if you want challenging conditions, we can find those, too. It’s only a matter of sailing out of the California Bight to the “other side” of the islands.

If you’ve got questions about sailing in my part of the world, just give me a call at 805.750.7828

Or e-mail me at

Or  SKYPE me at sailchannelislands.

BTW — If you’d like me to sail with you aboard your boat, I’m happy to be your guide. Or, if you’d rather, sail with me aboard my Jeanneau 45.2. I’ll bring the chef (who is also the Bosun), show you the sights and fill you up with local knowledge and some excellent cuisine.

Sail for just a few hours …. or several days
